PACER App Suite for Disasters and Flu Outbreaks Fact Sheet

When disasters and flu outbreaks strike communities, hospitals; emergency responders; and other city, state, and federal response agencies need to know what resources are available to accommodate a potentially large influx of injured or ill patients.
