Q.    Why do I need the information from Pandemic Home Care?

A.    A report prepared for the Agency for Health Research Quality states:

If or when a disaster occurs, communities must be prepared for the possibility that the arrival of government assistance may be delayed. Indeed, potentially significant interruptions in the deployment of medical assistance may occur in certain kinds of events (e.g., pandemic influenza) or in situations in which several events occur simultaneously.” (
