"The primary goal of this plan is to give local decision makers a clear and easy to read guide that defines roles, responsibilities and predetermined decision points that are likely to occur throughout the pandemic. In addition to being a guide to response, the plan should also serve as a lightning rod for the potentially politically charged and complicated questions that need to be asked and answered well before the onset of any pandemic. The Tulalip Tribes' Pandemic Flu Response Plan will be coordinated with local, regional, and state partners. The purpose of the plan is to: Define activities that the Tulalip Tribes and partner agencies may do before a pandemic occurs to prepare for a pandemic flu response; Define the decision-making structure and coordinated response efforts among the Tulalip. Tribes and partner agencies of Snohomish County, and state and federal agencies; Define roles and responsibilities of the Tulalip Tribes and local response partners during a pandemic; and Describe Public Health activities during a pandemic influenza event."
