Pandemic Preparedness: Getting started with a plan

March 1, 2018
An effective action plan begins with a thorough needs assessment to determine your vulnerabilities and help you understand your priorities. Take a good look at your organization and ask yourself a few simple but vital questions:

• Are you prepared for a large-scale   public health event?
• Are you prepared for a natural disaster or act of terrorism that affects thousands of people?
• Do you know how to keep your business or service running during and after a large-scale public health event?
• Do you have the right equipment and supplies in place to handle these types of events?
Don’t know where to start? 3M can help.
