GET PREPARED toolbox. Emergency Preparedness

A set of existing tools and new ones for assessing gaps in preparedness and resource requirements.

A collaboration to share good practices.  A toolbox for the contingency planner.

How prepared are we?

In recent years, the EuFMD has focused emergency preparedness efforts on testing of preparedness, using simulation exercises and developing a self-assessment tool. Experience has shown that, when gaps are identified, tools to address them are required.   The EuFMD is collaborating with DG SANTE Directorate and EU Member Nations to identify significant gaps and develop criteria, and examples, of good practice.

GET prepared aims to offer a toolbox of resources for assessing and addressing gaps in emergency preparedness against FAST diseases.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How does it work?

The components of emergency preparedness are viewed as a wall, with each brick in the wall being a component, and behind each brick, there are links to the tools for assessing and addressing the gaps. The layers of bricks from bottom to top are divided into Foundation, and then the three epidemiological phases of outbreaks – Alert, Emergency and Reconstruction. The phases are line with the FAO Good Emergency Management Practices. 

These phases are shown in different colours - green, orange, red and blue. Within the phases, each layer includes complementary components e.g. those for a suspect investigation (personal biosecurity, epidemiological investigation, clinical examination and sampling) during the alert phase, or measures on infected premises (evaluation, culling, disposal, cleaning and disinfection, and restocking) during the emergency phase.

The toolbox contains tools for each component self-assessment, guidance documents or useful resources and examples of good practice.

 

These include the self-assessment tool, questionnaires, or simulation exercises for self-assessment; use of EuFMDis or resource calculators for assessing resources; and guidelines, templates, videos, webinar recordings, checklists, videos, job-aids as examples of good practice.

 

Guide. Planning Risk Communication on Foot-and-Mouth Disease

This guide is intended to be used by veterinary risk managers who are responsible for risk communication planning.

 

It may also be of use to communication experts who are responsible for animal health risk communication planning.
