When Would a POD be Activated?

A POD will be activated in the event of a public health emergency where a

large portion of the population or the entire population of Washoe

County is at risk.  An example of these types of emergencies would be a

bioterrorist attack involving the weaponization of a biological agent or

a disease outbreak that threatens the lives of a large portion of the

population, such as pandemic influenza.
