Disaster/Emergency Preparedness Plan:  Attached is the draft Disaster/Emergency Preparedness Plan, ER# 3.00500.  Please review this draft and submit your recommendations for changes to Reba Brown at Reba.Brown@health.mo.gov.  This plan was developed from experiences we have had during the last few years with snow/ice storms, tornadoes and power outages.  We have had some LWP input already and have included their thoughts in this plan.  Please provide your comments to Reba by June 1, 2007.
