Mississippi Pandemic Influenza Preparedness and Response Plan: Functional Annex 7.0   [open pdf - 4MB]

This document is the state of Mississippi's pandemic influenza preparedness and response plan effective July 10, 2008. "This Plan establishes a framework for management of State-wide operations in response to a sudden, pervasive influenza associated illness with appropriate, structured and well-designed responses. It establishes policies and procedures by which the State shall coordinate local, State, and Federal preparedness and response efforts for PI; and identifies addresses, analyzes, and provides a broad series of guidelines for action in case the influenza pandemic threat is realized and covers all events and activities deemed by the State Health Officer, or his designee, to require a coordinated Statewide response. The Plan embraces the National Response Plan (NRP) and the National Incident Management System (NIMS) as fundamental guidance for PI preparedness and response and is amended and updated to reflect evolving guidance and requirements of the NRP and NIMS. The State of Mississippi Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) and the MSDH Emergency Support Function (ESF)-8 Concept of Operations Plan for Public Health and Medical Emergencies (CONOPS Plan) provide an organizational structure to allow emergency medical services personnel and health care facilities to work together in a collaborative way and to provide assistance in situations where local resources are overwhelmed. This Plan is based on policies and procedures established within these two documents and serves as a Functional Annex to the CONOPS Plan."
