FEMA is placing a contract to have up to 6,000,000 “autoclavable” cotton blankets available for emergency distribution. They have a requirement for a maximum 4 hour order response time.

The requirement that the blankets be “autoclavable” are a strong indication that these blankets are for medical use. Given recent government ordering trends, this is likely further preparation for the government’s expected H7N9 bird flu pandemic. We believe that the risk of such a pandemic is low, but the impact may be staggeringly high.

The information for this order may be found at the following federal solicitations.
