FEMA has implemented the Logistics Supply Chain Management System to track and provide resources, such as food, water and medical supplies to disaster survivors. It is a system of people information and technology that enables FEMA to deliver lifesaving supplies when and where they are needed. LSCMS was designed so users will have greater assurance that the immediate requirements of FEMA, disaster survivors, and its partners will be met efficiently.
