Government Planning

This page provides information and resources for local city and other government planners. It also includes links to the local, state, and federal pandemic influenza response plans. 

Public Health encourages local city planners and disaster response personnel to develop local pandemic plans. Public Health staff is available to consult during this process and participate in coalition activities.
