What is the Infectious Disease Emergency Response Plan?

The Infectious Disease Emergency Response (IDER) Plan is a collection of downloadable templates that describe the roles and responsibilities of all components of an infectious disease emergency response, with guidance on activation protocols and communication structure within an Incident Command System framework. Highlighted text throughout the templates directs local health departments to jurisdiction-specific information so they may quickly make the modifications necessary for inclusion in their own plan.
