 EFFECTS OF A BIOLOGICAL PANDEMIC”

EFFECTS OF A BIOLOGICAL PANDEMIC”


“TRAINING AND A MOVIE:  THE EFFECTS OF A BIOLOGICAL PANDEMIC”

This workshop is intended to showcase the ‘unrealized’ effects a biological outbreak will have on a community and to prompt discussion amongst attendees as to what planning and preparation needs to be done beyond the basic State Health Department plans to dispense medication.

We will begin with a brief training overview of some known biological agents: their classification, signs and symptoms, and what makes them a threat.  The review will be followed by a modified-tabletop exercise using scenes from a movie that accurately depicts the ripple effects of a biological outbreak as the scenarios for our group discussions.  We will track an unknown biological agent from its initial appearance in ‘patient zero’ to its explosion as a worldwide pandemic. As the movie progresses, we will stop it, look at the events that have taken place up to that point and discuss what effect these events would have on Prince Georges County and the surrounding areas.

Who should attend this workshop? … Government officials and other community leaders, law enforcement, fire, first responders, health department and medical personnel, business leaders, CERT members & other community response organizations … basically everyone!.  

If/when this happens, it will truly take a community working together to make it through.
