ABSTRACT

State of Texas Emergency Management Plan Annex H: Appendix 7: Pandemic Influenza Response   [open pdf - 121KB]

"Pandemic influenza will pose unique and long-standing challenges not common to other disasters. The goal of pandemic influenza preparedness and response is to limit the spread of the virus; to minimize serious illness, hospitalizations, and death; to sustain critical infrastructure; and to minimize social disruption in Texas as a result of pandemic influenza. The purpose of this appendix is to provide guidance in preparing for, identifying, and responding to pandemic influenza that affects the State of Texas. For purposes of state emergency planning, this plan is focused on preparing for human pandemic influenza. The state's Foreign and Emerging Animal Disease (FEAD) plan will apply when preparing for a coordinated response to zoonotic disease outbreaks, including avian influenza."
