  1. Colorado Community Animal Response Training Module 1: Overview of Animal Emergency Management Issues Module 2: Overview of the National Incident Management System Module 3: Hazards, Vulnerabilities, Consequences and Risks Module 4: Colorado and Community Emergency Management Plans

  2. About the Colorado VeterinaryMedical Foundation Harrison Memorial Animal Hospital Animal Emergency Management Programs Community Pet Sterilization Grants Colorado’s Pet Heroes Animal health and welfare educational programs Making Colorado a better place for animals and people!

  3. CVMF Animal Emergency Management Programs State Animal Response Team (CO SART) Local program support (CART) Training and technical assistance Preparedness outreach Coordination of Colorado Veterinary Medical Reserve Corps State EOC support – ESF 11E

  4. Why are we here today? To provide the introductory level knowledge, skills and abilities that will enable animal services professionals and community volunteers to begin to participate in their Community Animal Response Team (CART).

  5. Training Objectives At the end of this training program, you will be able to: List the impacts animal emergency issues have on our nation, state and communities Identify the core features of the National Incident Management System Describe the key processes involved in creating a local animal emergency plan Identify the essential tasks in animal emergency response Describe the basic animal handling skills and personal safety concerns Describe the key components of responder safety related to hazards Identify the basic components of a personal, family, or business emergency plan Identify additional resources for training related to general and animal emergency management and response

  6. Training and credentialing Local level training and credentialing standards: Set by CART program and local emergency management agency Minimum training for inter-jurisdictional deployment of SART/CART personnel through Colorado Emergency Operations Center (EOC) CART Introductory Training (today’s training!) IS-100 ICS and IS-700 NIMS (available on-line via FEMA Emergency Management Institute) May be additional requirements for supervisory positions or technical specialties

  7. Module 1: Overview of Animal Emergency Management Issues

  8. Module 1: Learning Objectives At the end of this unit, you will be able to: List seven key emergency issues related to animals Describe the potential impacts of an animal health emergency related to: the economy; national security; and our food supply. Describe the overall scope of animal demographics in Colorado and the nation

  9. What are the animal concerns in disasters? Public safety Public and animal health Food security Animal welfare Service/police animals Captive animal populations Wildlife/environment

  10. Public Safety Impacts People will risk their lives to protect animals Can put themselves and responders at risk Redeployment of law enforcement resources This is not just a companion animal issue Operation Pet Rescue: 1996 Weyauwega, Wisconsin

  11. Public Health and Zoonosis Public health and animal health issues intersect broadly Veterinary professionals are essential in addressing zoonotic disease issues during disasters A zoonosis is any infectious disease that can be transmitted from non-human animals, both wild and domestic, to humans or from humans to non-human animals.

  12. Examples of Zoonotic Diseases Rabies West Nile Virus HIV H1N1 Anthrax Brucellosis Tuberculosis Rabies Guardia Salmonella Influenza Plague

  13. PETS Act Pet Evacuation and Transportation Act of 2006-signed into law October 2006 Stafford Act amendment Requires state and local plans for household pets and service animals Allows FEMA cost-sharing for services in support of people with household pets and service animals Allows FEMA director to make contributions for preparedness

  14. Animal welfare

  15. Service Animals Seeing-eye dogs Hearing assistance Hospital visits Mobility assistance Medical warning Seizures Medical detection Mental health therapy

  16. Law Enforcement and Emergency Response Animals Canine Enforcement/patrol Drug and explosive detection Search and rescue Equine Patrol/search Crowd control

  17. Captive/Concentrated Animal Populations laboratory animals zoos, sanctuaries, wildlife parks commercial breeding/pet retail kennels/veterinary hospitals

  18. Native wildlife Impacts on critical environments or endangered species Impacts of animal diseases • Brucellosis (Yellowstone) • Foot and Mouth Disease • West Nile Virus • H1N1 (Swine Flu)

  19. Animals in the State of Colorado Colorado (2002 estimate) 4.5+ million people 1.82 million households Up to 60% of households with pets 2.5 animals per household 2.7+ million dogs, cats, and birds Add rabbits, rodents, ferrets, reptiles, etc.

  20. Colorado Horses & Other Livestock Species Horses: 145,000-225,000+ All Cattle: 2,400,000 Mature dairy cows: 98,000 Mature beef cows: 710,000 Sheep & goats: 420,000+ Poultry: <20,000,000 (variable) Swine: 770,000 Captive deer, elk, bison Llamas, alpacas Emu, ostrich

  21. Module 2: Overview of the National Incident Management System (NIMS)

  22. Module 2: Learning Objectives At the end of this unit, you will be able to correctly identify: The basic priorities and principles of emergency management The role of the local emergency manager; emergency operations center; and emergency operations plan The basic structure and functions of National Incident Management System (NIMS), including the Incident Command System (ICS).

  23. Animal Emergency Management Systems

  24. What is a disaster? A disaster results in departments or agencies being unexpectedly torn from their standard operating procedures or are required to obtain resources outside their normal authority. A disaster is the tragedy of a natural or human-made hazard (a hazard is a situation which poses a level of threat to life, health, property, or environment) that negatively affects society or environment. “The only thing harder than explaining why you need to prepare for a disaster, is having to explain why you didn’t.”

  25. Prevention, protection and mitigation Preparedness Response Recovery Missions of Emergency Management

  26. Emergency Management Priorities Protection of human life/health Protection of property Protection of the environment For many people, animals are the top property priority Providing animal emergency management services allows all of these priorities to be achieved

  27. All-Hazards Emergency Management Flexible to adapt to all emergency situations Standardized to improve overall response and interoperability. Comprehensive Emergency Management

  28. Local Emergency Management Emergency Manager Coordinate planning/preparedness efforts Manage local EOC Emergency Operations Plan Responsibilities, key policies Government & Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO) Mechanisms for outside assistance Emergency Operations Center (EOC) information gathering priority setting resource coordination

  29. NIMS and NRP Relationship Resources Knowledge Abilities National Incident Management System

  30. Components of NIMS Command & Management Preparedness Resource Management Communications and Information Management Supporting Technologies Ongoing Management and Maintenance

  31. Incident Command Authority Depends on scope of incident Authority can be either an Incident Commander or shared command Management system Incident management teams can manage any event

  32. Statutory Authority Legal Authority is basis for incident command Local animal authorities Law enforcement Animal control Public health Emergency management State animal authorities State veterinarian Public health Emergency management Wildlife agencies Public safety Federal animal authorities USDA: livestock diseases HHS: public health impacts DHS: emergency management DOJ: Terrorism Colorado’s 9 Homeland Security Regions

  33. Incident Commander Safety Officer Liaison Officer Information Officer Operations Section Planning Section Logistics Section Finance Section Basic ICS Command Structure IS-100 Incident Command Systems
