This free one-day (8 hour) course is designed for agriculture emergency responders in rural communities.
The course will focus on the best practices and safety issues associated with an agriculture
emergency, including: quarantines, biosecurity, euthanasia, disposal, use of personal protective
equipment (PPE), and cleaning and disinfection. The course will help increase knowledge of
coordination efforts needed for responding to an agricultural emergency across jurisdictions, lines
of authority and disciplines by examining the integration of response efforts.
With natural turnover of emergency response personnel, training needs to be a continuous process.
Animal disease response begins at the local level but may quickly escalate to the state and even
federal levels. Local responders should have an understanding of why response actions are important
and be able to clearly and effectively communicate with state and federal officials.
