# Discussion Board Question :

Failure to plan in depth is usually the result of not fully thinking through a problem. How many pandemic response plans, for example, consider the need for the disposal of infectious waste products? According to a recent article in the Los Angeles Times, a single Ebola patient treated in a U.S. hospital generates the equivalent of eight 55 gallon drums of medical waste each day. Multiply that by the numbers we expect in a major pandemic and you can begin to grasp the enormity of the problem. Further complicating the problem is the fact that many states have laws prohibiting the burning of infectious waste. Transporting the waste to a state that does permit burning creates its own set of problems and a potential environmental nightmare. This is not a problem you want to try to solve at the time.

It is often said that disaster operations are really logistics operations and to a certain extent this is true. Our response system is designed to assess resources needs and then to fulfill them as best we can. Logistical planning should be at the core of your disaster planning.

Try to think of one element of logistics and how to explain how a failure in planning could provide a path to serious consequences to a disaster operation. An example could be the lack of adequate fuel supplies for vehicles or substance for your workers. Along with the problem, states a few remedies to mitigate or prevent the situation.
