International Swine Flu Conference in D.C.

Here is the pdf brochure of the conference.
Topics include:
Mass Fatality Management Planning
Public's Distress of Exposure and Safety
Unwillingness to Follow Government Orders
Breakdown of Public Services, utilities
Effectively Undertake Mass Vaccinations
Enforce Quarantines
Control traffic, evacuation and mass transportation
Plan for 30-40 % Drop in Labor Force
Isolate Prisons and other facilities

It looks like they have many plans in place as these topics are training panels. I think we would all be wise to prepare for the worst and hope for the best. I think a reasonable supply of food, water, first aid kit, your standard emergency supplies, vitamin D3, would be a really good idea. They seem to be preparing for lots of disruptions. We will see. Better safe than sorry. Be well, take care of each other. The best defense against illness is a positive attitude.
