The Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS), having recognized the potential threat of a world-wide influenza pandemic, and the potential impact it could have on all KCTCS colleges, has instructed all KCTCS locations to develop a plan to respond to the effects such an outbreak would create. In response to the request for the need to develop Pandemic Influenza Plans system wide, the Office of the President for West Kentucky Community and Technical College (WKCTC) has created the Pandemic Influenza Planning (PIP) Committee. The PIP Committee was established to ensure that preparedness and pandemic response planning occurs. The PIP Committee has been identified as WKCTC's authorities responsible for the activation of the WKCTC Pandemic Influenza Plan*. The College has developed an Avian Flu Prevention Handbook *which provides detail about the pandemic bird flu and how to prevent it.
