Sagadahoc prescribes door-to-door pandemic primer
The Sagadahoc County Emergency Management Agency has coordinated an effort to go door-to-door throughout the county that day to provide residents with pocket guides about preparing for a pandemic flu that some scientists consider to be not a matter of "if," but "when."
The individual preparedness detailed in the agency's guide ranges from everyday measures such as washing hands frequently with soap and water to more long-term plans, like compiling an emergency kit with 30 days' worth of food, water, medicines and disinfectants.
"The key part to all of this is individual preparedness," said Green. "The towns can be ready and the county can be ready, but to stop the spread, the key is individual preparedness."

Thanks FlyersFan, Lizzie.
Interesting to hear that California is handing out pamphlets - are they about bird flu, a general pandemic? What's the focus?
