Emergency Preparedness

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Introduction to Animal Emergency Preparedness 

Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) is responsible for the prevention and control of foreign, emerging livestock and production animal diseases and other animal health emergencies. ODA coordinates with the Oregon Department of Emergency Management (OEM) for planning and preparedness to respond to an animal health disease emergency using the ODA Animal Disease Response Plan in the event of an animal disease emergency. ODA coordinates with Oregon Health Authority (OHA) to address zoonotic disease issues, which are diseases that can be transmissible between animals and humans.
