BPWG Documents

The Best Practices Working Groups developed out of a partnership between NARSC and NASAAEP—the National Alliance of State Animal and Agricultural Emergency Programs to bring together subject matter experts in all areas of emergency animal response to develop a series of best practices white papers. These working groups have developed best practices in the following areas:

  • Animal Decontamination
  • Animal Search and Rescue
  • Disaster Veterinary Care
  • Emergency Animal Sheltering
  • Evacuation and Transportation
  • Large Animal Sheltering and Medicine
  • Planning & Resource Management
  • Preparedness & Community Outreach
  • Situational Assessment & Reporting
  • Training
  • Zoological Emergency Planning

These white papers are an invaluable source of information for anyone working in these areas, emergency planners, and emergency response teams. They can be found here.
