    "After a flood, the physical devastation to a community is obvious. But during the flood and its aftermath, there are some basic facts to remember that will help protect your personal health and safety. This pamphlet provides information that will help you and other flood victims prevent diseases and injury and maintain good health in the days and weeks following a flood. This information is provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through state and local health departments. It includes general disease and injury prevention guidelines that may vary slightly from state to state. If in doubt, contact your local or state health departments, which will issue health advisories or recommendations particular to local conditions." - p. 1
