The InterAgency Board (IAB) recently published a new paper entitled Training Trigger: Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI). This paper discusses the potential devastating economic impacts avian influenza could cause in the US as well as activities first responder organizations can take to prepare for such an event.
The IAB is a voluntary collaborative panel of emergency preparedness and response practitioners, representing all levels of government as well as operational, technical, and support organizations. The IAB provides a structured forum for the exchange of ideas to improve the Nation’s ability to prepare for and respond safely to emergencies, disasters, and other critical incidents.
