There was quite a bit packed into an hour because it was well-organized, but easy to follow. You can follow along to compare whether (or what types of) preparedness has or has not been done locally. For example, I haven’t seen or heard anything about the ethics of who will receive scarce treatments; we know from the Hooper Bay fire news stories that very few if any schools have an emergency plan which has been tested. Have any of the businesses (besides Corinna’s) looked to see if there will be sufficient sanitation supplies on hand? Lynden Cargo is about our only source of fresh foods and mail. What will they do if the airport is closed for several weeks or their staff is ill? Another question, although this is the year designated for maximum seasonal influenza immunizations and education, how come we are so late in getting the vaccine?
