PER-273 - A Coordinated Response to Food Emergencies: Practice and Execution

This instructor-led course provides responders with training on all-hazards food emergency support operations. For the purpose of this course, food emergencies include natural disasters, human-made disasters, foodborne outbreaks, or food adulterations that impact the food chain and have the potential for mass consequences. The course focuses on the performance and coordination of local, state, and federal agency operations during the response to and recovery from such emergencies. The course covers the four main phases of food emergency response: incident identification and investigation, containment and control, disposal and decontamination, and recovery. The course uses classroom instruction and a collaborative learning exercise to provide participants with the tools and knowledge to effectively respond to a variety of food emergencies. Finally, participants will create a comprehensive action plan specific to their particular agency or jurisdiction which incorporates course content. This action plan will familiarize participants with the critical considerations during food emergency response as it pertains to their specific job duties and responsibilities.
