Local emergency management organizations are making plans to deal with any major outbreak of the H-1-N-1 flu this fall. Brian Shanks of the Ken Valley E-M-O group tells us they're planning a series of public information sessions to talk about things like the impact of the flu on home life. Shanks says more details will be available within a couple of weeks regarding the information sessions. Public health officials predict absenteeism rates could hit as high as 25-percent if the so called "swine flu" pandemic outbreak gains a foothold in the province this fall and winter.
