Pandemic Influenza Plan 2007

Arrow BulletChapter 6: Emergency Response and the Incident Management System

As the pandemic threat level changes, the Peel Medical Officer of Health (MOH) will notify the Regional Community Emergency Management Coordinator (CEMC) through the Regional Emergency Operations Centre (REOC). In turn, the Regional CEMC will notify the lower-tier CEMCs of the pandemic threat level and the possible need to activate their emergency plans. Depending on the situation, the CEMC may be notified directly by Emergency Management Ontario, who may also recommend the activation of local emergency response plans. The REOC is typically activated after the situation is assessed by the Regional Emergency Control Group (RECG). In consultation with the Regional Chair, the MOH may request that health sector agencies and key community stakeholders activate their own emergency response plans.
