Joint USAHA/AAVLD Committee on Animal Emergency Management

The USAHA/AAVLD Committee on Animal Emergency Management provides a national forum for the discussion and exchange of information pertaining to the management of emergencies involving animals, including incursions of foreign or exotic animal disease. The committee members and agency liaison representatives review and analyze animal emergency management issues and activities with the goal of further integration of prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery plans between federal, state, and agriculture animal industry partners. In addressing issues and concerns that may affect animal emergency preparedness or response, the committee may make recommendations to influence policy of government, academic, research, or industry groups by proposing actions to reduce the potential of adverse effects of animal emergencies on the U.S. animal agriculture industry.
