ABSTRACT

Responding to Pandemic Influenza: A Hazard-Specific Appendix to the Monroe County Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan   [open pdf - 454KB]

"In March of 2006, the New York State Department of Health distributed Pandemic planning guidance to county health departments as a resource to assist the Monroe County Public Health Department in preparing for a Pandemic. While this plan is beneficial, it is focused on Department operations including surveillance and laboratory testing, healthcare planning, infection control, clinical guidelines, and vaccine procurement, distribution and use. This Appendix, Responding to Pandemic Influenza, establishes County policy to address mitigation, readiness, response and recovery associated with the threat of Pandemic Influenza. It recognizes the impact on public health systems, public safety, the coordination of resources among multiple local governments and state and federal agencies, and the community-wide impact associated with widespread outbreaks of influenza."
