This course addresses Emergency Support Function #8 issues.
The first day of training focuses on planning
considerations and recommendations to achieve CDC’s 48 hours or less (standalone capability) for Mass Prophylaxis. The second day of training focuses on the local community’s Mass Prophylaxis plan and POD site preparedness. The course material is applicable to pandemic influenza, bio-terrorism, and other public
health emergencies using at least one local POD site plan as the foundation for an exercise. Because we are focusing onBayCare Hospitals, our goal is for each hospital to focus on their site.
