  • hiring staff or contractors to conduct response planning activities;
  • development or revision of animal disease or hazard plans;
  • training and exercising the plans;
  • procurement (purchase, rent, lease) of equipment required for response to a disease outbreak;
  • contracting out response activities;
  • training staff to use response equipment;
  • research around improved disease outbreak response, such as depopulation methods;
  • research of prevention/mitigation strategies, such as vaccination or biosecurity strategies, implementation of mitigation and biosecurity measures/strategies.
