Animal Emergency Response Planning Toolkit
The Animal Emergency Response Planning Toolkit will help emergency managers and community partners to create an agreed upon framework for preparedness, response and recovery efforts related to the management of animals. By working together through the suggested steps communities can develop a useable plan that can quickly be put into action during emergency events.
The Toolkit can be downloaded in its entirety and its appendices separately (so each can be tailored to a community's specific needs).
