Pandemic Planning Guides and Agency Strategies
The best way to prepare for a possible pandemic health crisis is to plan carefully. Planning includes -
These Pandemic Planning Guides and Agency Strategies are designed to assist agencies as they prepare for a possible pandemic health crisis. Some of the planning guides provide suggestions for general preparations, while others provide information for handling specific situations that may arise. We recommend agencies immediately use the checklist formatted guides to assess their current state of readiness. The checklists can also be used in the future to assess progress and overall preparation for dealing with a potential health emergency.
Because the planning guides are general in nature, readers should also review their agency human resources management policies, practices, and guidance to understand specific actions and flexibilities they have available to them during a pandemic health crisis.
The planning activities in these Planning Guides and Agency Strategies supplement existing all-hazard emergency/business contingency planning guidance that can be found at www.pandemicflu.gov.
We also have distilled the critical roles and responsibilities of agencies, employees, and supervisors in the event of a pandemic health crisis.
