Posted on: December 12 2010 - 12:24pm
As the staff here at the Public Health Seattle and King County Advanced Practice Center continue to create innovative and cutting edge preparedness tools addressing a wide variety of topics ranging from business continuity to family assistance center planning it is gratifying to hear how other health departments around the county are utilizing the products created here in King County. This month the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department has featured the preparedness comic book No Ordinary Flu in their state wide newsletter. The full article and newsletter can be downloaded here. In a time of ever decreasing staffing and resources, and the increasing need for preparedness planning expertise across the public health spectrum, the spirit of collaboration across the national APC program continues to motivate and inspire us to address the needs of our community and lean forward as a national leader in the public health preparedness planning field.
