SUPPLIES 
 
REF: STATE 67936 
 
1. (U) On December 2, post's Pandemic Influenza Action 
Committee met per action request reftel.  The committee was 
chaired by the DCM and included representatives from the 
following sections: Political-Economic, Consular, RSO and 
Med.  Med reviewed post's avian influenza plan, and the 
committee agreed that no changes were required and that the 
plan was consistent with similar tripwires utilized by other 
embassies.  A review of post's medical supplies revealed 
sufficient medications and equipment (including Tamiflu and 
Relenza) to cover beneficiaries should this be required. 
 
2. (U) Food requirements will be met by individual's stores 
and by utilizing post's commissary.  Water stored in each

wells would be able to sustain the community for an extended, 
if not indefinite, amount of time should the occasion arise.

for individuals will be disseminated to the embassy community 
by post's Medical Officer.  The Consular Section will send 
similar information to the private American community in 
Georgia as well.
