Emergency officials are working together to create a plan for managing health outbreaks.

Several organizations attended an emergency preparedness exercise to figure out how they would respond to an outbreak in Acadiana and ways to keep the public safe.

“The public should really feel good about the fact that your health care systems are planning with the university,” said Dr. Tina Stefanski, Regional Medical Director, Acadiana Office of Public Health. “We’re all working together to make sure we’re doing everything we can. When something like this happens, it’s always there are unforeseen circumstances.”
