Introduction to Veterinary Disaster Response

Course Objectives

This course introduces students to the basics of responding to disasters as a veterinary responder and builds a base for further development in responder training. Students receive training on Incident Command Systems (ICS), learn about the role of veterinarians in disaster response through first-hand accounts and case studies, and craft their own disaster response plan and ICS organizational chart.

Students who complete the course will be added to a database of FEMA-trained basic-volunteer responders at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
