The Swine Flu is prompting local businesses to learn how to better plan and prepare for a possible pandemic or widespread emergency in the future.
That was the theme of an emergency preparedness seminar held at Sanitary Supply Corporations Grand Junction location this morning.
An official with the Mesa County Health Department discussed health issues, flu transmission, and when to see a doctor.
The seminar also covered preparedness kits, like how much water and food you would need in a worst case scenario.
Health Department officials say you would need a gallon of water per person, per day, and to be careful about buying rice, pasta, and beans, which require water for re-hydration.
