PPD-8 and Last Years Preparedness TASK FORCE


PPD-8 was signed on March 30, 2011. Some are suggesting it has it sources in the Preparedness Task Force of last fall!   For a text copy go to:

http://www.fema.gov/txt/preparednesstaskforce/perspective_on_preparedness.txt

For another version write to me.  See also:http://www.hlswatch.com/2010/10/27/beyond-72-hours/

Personally I believe both the task force report and the new PPD-8 are pablum. But I did find the bibliography of interest  so here it is:
