"Show me the manner in which a nation or a community cares for its dead and I will measure with mathematical exactness the tender sympathies of its people, their respect for the laws of the land and their loyalty to high ideals.”
~William E. Gladstone

A pandemic in the future is inevitable. It is not a question of if, it is a question of WHEN. Although this team will not respond to a typical pandemic situation, we have included our pandemic flu planning page of information for your use. If you know of other documents or planning tools that may be helpful, please contact us.

This team will only activate at the request of the Highest Ranking Official (HRO)
