Program Overview

The current 2009 H1N1 pandemic event, upcoming seasonal flu, or the recent floods are evidence that all organizations need to create and maintain a Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP). This training opportunity is intended for all Alabama State Agencies to review the Governor's Pandemic Influenza (PI) and All-Hazard (AH) Directive signed on April 10, 2009, new Integrated Template, high-priority elements, and collaboration of ADPH, AEMA, and UAB to assist agencies accomplish this directive.
