It is intended to illustrate the anticipated conditions and effect of such a pandemic, as well describe what the next steps are that should be taken for preparedness in agencies or communities.

Center for Disease Control Emergency Preparedness Website

The CDC (federal government's Center for Disease Control) provides a website for sharing information about disease preparedness, such as in the case of a pandemic (i.e., all or nearly all people get sick). This includes an influenza pandemic.
