Campus leaders at Michigan Technological University, on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, are facing the potential of a swine flu epidemic or pandemic better prepared than some, thanks to a fortuitous choice of avian flu as the theme for a tabletop crisis response exercise last fall.

Jon Stone, safety and health specialist and safety officer on Michigan Tech's Incident Command Team, can talk about the mock epidemic and what the University learned.
