  22. Why We Are Involved • Urgent • Drinking water security 78% • Food security 64% • Individual’s role 57% • Government’s role 55% • Animal biosecurity 50% • Personal security 48% • Farm security 45% • Financial security 42% • Plant/crop biosecurity 37%

  23. Why We Are Involved • A farmer would turn to Extension: • 1st Choice (79%) – Plant • 2nd Choice (54%) – Animal

  24. Rationale • The results illustrated the need for creating two courses:

  25. Expanding National Access EDEN Pioneer Community of Practice • Focus: Floods & Agrosecurity

  26. Other Curriculums • OnGuard: Protecting America’s Food System • USDA’s Roles in the National Response Plan • Ready Business – Preparing a Disaster Business Plan

Conference attendees will be able to identify key roles and players in: • Emergency and disaster management in an animal agrosecurity event • Education during all phases of emergency and disaster management • Partnership development within and across states • Crisis communication related to an animal agrosecurity event • State animal response team development • Educational program and material development/delivery for an animal agrosecurity event

  29. The FUTURE: • DHS farm regulations • SCAP • Food Security Workshops • ICS-NIMS for Extension • Growing EDEN by program area
