  • Pandemic Flu Planning Checklist

     

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention compiled a checklist to help you and your family prepare for the possibility of a flu pandemic:

    Prepare your home for a pandemic

    • Store a supply of water and food. During a pandemic, if you cannot get to a store, or if stores are out of supplies, it will be important to have extra supplies on hand. See supply list below.
    • Ask your doctor and insurance company if you can get an extra supply of your regular prescription drugs.
    • Have nonprescription drugs and other health supplies on hand, including pain relievers, stomach remedies, cough and cold medicines, fluids with electrolytes and vitamins.

     

    Limit the spread of germs and prevent infection

    • Teach your children to wash hands frequently with soap and water, and model the correct behavior.
    • Teach your children to cover coughs and sneezes with tissues, and be sure to model that behavior.
    • Teach your children to stay away from others if they are sick. Stay home from work and school when you are sick.

     

    Get involved in community preparedness

    • Volunteer with local groups to prepare and assist with emergency response.
    • Make sure your children's schools are included in preparedness planning.
