Key Takeaways

  1. Three pandemics occurred during the previous century. Avian Influenza A (H5N1) has the potential to start a new influenza pandemic.
  2. How to Identify Risks From a H5N1 Simulation:
    • Start with a table top exercise involving 6-8 key decision makers.
    • Execute a scenario in military-like fashion using an Incident Command System.
    • Document the impact to each organizational area and critique simulation results to identify potential risks.
    • Make modifications to plan and execute new scenarios with additional participants until comfort level is reached.
  3. Simulations often identify a breakdown in two-way communications. Satellite phones are a good backup.
