Incident Command, and international agricultural health networks of emergency response. cooperators Depending on the nature of the emergency any of the. APHIS program units could have a leadership role at the emergency. incident site working jointly with local cooperators in a unified. command structure, Depending on the scope and evolution of the emergency the APHIS. program lead unit and local cooperators will need to involve others. in the response APHIS has several permanent structures in place to. Coordination Structure and, coordinate the delivery of outside resources and other support to the. emergency incident sites, APHIS Office of Emergency Management and Homeland.

APHIS is to protect the health and value of American agriculture and. natural resources To achieve this mission APHIS and its program. cooperators and stakeholders have built an agricultural health. emergency management system to prevent prepare for respond to and. recover from threats affecting animal and plant resources or the food. After the terrorist attacks of September 11 2001 and subsequent. analysis of major threats the National Response Plan and Homeland. Security Presidential Directives considerably expanded the scope. and nature of APHIS emergency management responsibilities.

To successfully accomplish its emergency management. responsibilities APHIS works in close collaboration with other Federal. agencies State tribal territorial and foreign governments as well as. non governmental groups and the private sector, Congress has provided APHIS with legal authorities and resources. needed to carry out its roles and responsibilities Some of the key laws. include the Plant Protection Act the Animal Health Protection Act and. the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response. Act Of the 1 4 billion in APHIS annual 2006 budget Congress. appropriated over 140 million for emergency response and. preparedness activities For responding to specific emergency. situations APHIS often uses other sources of funding such as. Congressional supplemental appropriations and transfers from the. Commodity Credit Corporation CCC In the past six years CCC. emergency transfers to APHIS totaled over 1 3 billion Depending on. the situation APHIS often will pool these Federal resources with those. of States and other emergency response jurisdictions to optimize. response effectiveness APHIS employs over 8 500 personnel. organized into six program operations units and three management. support units to effectively and efficiently manage these resources. The complete Agricultural Health and Homeland Security Emergency.

Management how APHIS program and support units organize their response around. three main systems of the NIMS, Incident Command Structure.
Multi agency Coordination, Public Information, APHIS Emergencies APHIS response actions depend on the nature and scope of the. Scope and Type emergency event, APHIS traditional role has been to provide Federal leadership and. resources to manage outbreaks of pests or diseases threatening. Outbreaks of pests or, agricultural production and trade These outbreaks range from single. diseases threatening, incidents in one State Peach Fruit Fly to multiple incidents occurring. agricultural production and, in one APHIS region Exotic Newcastle Disease to other countries.
outbreaks that directly threaten the United States Mediterranean fruit. fly in Mexico and Hog Cholera in the Dominican Republic and Haiti. In recent years APHIS protection responsibilities have expanded to. Other Agricultural Health include other agriculture related industries such as aquaculture and. Situations biotechnology For example there have been several incidents. involving the unintentional release of genetically modified grain into. the environment which threatened grain exports from the entire United. As APHIS mission has expanded more into protecting natural. Threats to Natural resources we are expected to respond to disease or pest outbreaks in. Resources wildlife and forests Examples include chronic wasting disease in deer. and elk and introductions of Asian Long Horned Beetle and Emerald. Ash Borer These pests and diseases have spread to several States. Some of the agricultural and natural resource health threats also are. Threats to Public Health human health threats and this ratchets up the expectations for a quick. and effective APHIS response Some important examples include. West Nile virus in birds bovine spongiform encephalopathy BSE in. cattle rabies in wildlife and highly pathogenic avian influenza HPAI. Asian strain in wild birds and poultry, Although APHIS is expected to respond to normal agricultural and. Agro Terrorism natural resources health threats and zoonotic disease outbreaks the. NRP and HSPD 10 BioDefense for the 21st Century added new. responsibilities related to agro terrorism and other major agricultural. health disasters that threaten the entire U S economy One of the main. bioterrorism scenarios is the introduction of foot and mouth disease in. multiple locations around the country, All Hazards APHIS is also expected to play a role in a wide variety of emergency. incidents all hazards unrelated to outbreaks of pests and diseases. threatening agricultural production and trade Thus in 2005 when. FEMA activated the NRP ESF 11 after Hurricane Katrina APHIS. participated in many response activities including animal rescue. APHIS Agricultural Health and Homeland Security Emergency Response Integration Plan.
