Introduction to Animal Emergency Management

The CFSPH, with the support of USDA APHIS Animal Care Emergency Programs, developed this 10 part course to provide Animal Care employees with foundational information and skills to support USDA APHIS Animal Care's emergency planning and response roles as part of the ESF #11 mission area: Safety and Well-Being of Pets, and other laws or policies related to emergency planning and response. This course may also be of interest to individuals involved in animal emergency management in local, state, tribal or federal agencies and non-governmental organizations. Animal Care conducts periodic Web-based training using the modules. For more information, agencies and organizations may contact Dr. Kevin Dennison, , (Western Region), or Dr. Jeanie Lin, (Eastern Region).
