Are Your County and State Ready to Respond to an Animal Emergency?
About this Webinar
This free webinar, led by Dick Green of the ASPCA’s disaster response team, covers results from the National Capabilities for Animal Response in Emergencies (NCARE) survey and the Washington State Capabilities for Animal Response in Emergencies. You’ll get insights into which counties and states have Animal Response Teams and learn how prepared your region is in the event of a disaster that affects animals.

- How their region compares to others in terms of disaster readiness
- How animal welfare organizations can work with local and national responders on disaster preparedness plans
- How to use The Animal Emergency Preparedness Checklist
- County and state emergency managers
- Authorities having jurisdiction (typically animal control at county level and Department of Agriculture at state level)
- First responders who are interested in deploying outside their service area
- County Animal Response Team (CART) leadership
- State Animal Response Team leadership
