The HHS emPOWER Map is a public and interactive map that provides the de-identified total number of Medicare beneficiary claims for certain electricity-dependent medical and assistive equipment that include: ventilators, oxygen concentrators, enteral feeding machines, intravenous (IV) infusion pumps, suction pumps, at-home dialysis machines, wheelchairs, scooters, and beds.  The data is updated monthly and provided both geospatially and in table format at the national, state, territory, county and zip code levels.
Federal Medical Station (FMS)
Federal Medical Stations (FMSs) provide equipment and supplies to operate temporary medical facilities for from 50 to 250 patients within appropriate “buildings of opportunity” (site assessments are required to ensure suitability of potential facilities).  Supplies are adequate for three days of clinical care before resupply is required.
International Medical Surgical Response Teams (IMSuRT)
International Medical/Surgical Response Teams (IMSuRT) are intended to be deployed at the request of the Department of State to treat United States (U.S.) citizens injured as a result of terrorism. A typical team configuration would consist of 50 members with flexible and mobile equipment, supplies, and pharmaceuticals. The primary OCONUS mission is to stabilize and prepare victims for medical evacuation back to the U.S.
Rapid Deployment Forces
The U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS) Rapid Deployment Forces (RDF) provides resources and assistance to State, Tribal and local health authorities throughout the United States. They were created in 2006 as part of the National Response Framework’s ESF-8 public health and medical asset provisions. Like all Commissioned Corps response teams, they may be deployed in response to an ESF-8 or non- ESF-8 public health emergency.
