    The following message was sent to the National Safety Council from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

      The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention appreciates the valuable efforts of National Safety Council members to help persons affected by Hurricane Irene recover and rebuild.
      The links below lead to printable documents that provide instructions for cleaning up after flooding, power outage and storm damage. These documents describe activities and precautions to consider for cleaning up, determining food safety and protection from mold.
      Many areas are without power or Internet access. Please consider printing these documents and handing them out to businesses and persons who may benefit from the included instructions. If large-scale printing is a challenge, please contact CDC at eocjiccoet@cdc.gov for assistance with printing and shipping documents.
