HHS is counting on using DMAT teams to assist in a pandemic. DMAT members need to have training to "de-mystify" influenza and what protective equipment to wear, modes of transmission info etc. They need a concrete, foolproof, 24/7 plan to be vaccinated and/or prophylaxed and must have confidence that the HHS leadership will support them. If not, I fear that their members will not answer the call and we cant make them.
