The Wheaton Fire and Police departments developed a Pandemic Flu Planning Checklist (pdf) for Individuals and Families to help reduce the impact of a flu pandemic at home, at work and in neighborhoods. It includes lists of emergency supplies and medical and health supplies needed in the event of a pandemic as well as recommendations for contingency plans.
If there is a flu pandemic or other medical emergency, a Family Health Information Sheet (pdf), which is a list of health information about your family, will be important. Use this template to record vital health information.
DuPage County offers a Community Outreach Kit (pdf) to help people understand the impact a pandemic flu outbreak could have and what they can do to be prepared. It describes the difference between seasonal flu, bird flu and pandemic flu, and it offers answers to common questions. The County also has compiled emergency preparedness information about Emergency Medication Dispensing (pdf), which offers information about how cities can respond to disease outbreaks to prevent them from further spreading.
