Kentucky Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) Emergency Communication Guide and Pandemic Annex

The Kentucky Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) Communication Guide was created to assist state and local public health and public information officers in their response to a public emergency. This guide is specifically meant to serve as a resource in case of an event occurring in Kentucky that requires the deployment of the SNS. A public health emergency will require communication among all responding agencies as well as public information for the media and affected Kentucky citizens.

This guide is a living document. It is anticipated that as new press releases, fact sheets, message maps, scripts and other materials are located or developed by state or local public health and public information officials, they will be compiled and included as a resource for the entire state's emergency communication community.

A pandemic influenza annex was recently added to assist in the event of an influenza pandemic.

The documents listed below can be customized to include your local health department contact information. Save the customized documents to your computer to have them ready for emergencies. 

Please send comments and suggestions for this guide to Barbara Fox, Division of Communications, Cabinet for Health and Family Services at (502) 564-6786 Ext. 4411 or email to
