An Emergency Response Plan helps you react immediately in unforeseen circumstances


With an Emergency Response Plan in place you will know how to react, who to contact and what actions to take from the moment an issue occurs, or a disease is suspected. You’ll start your business’s recovery from day 1: getting you back to normal operations faster.

When responding to an emergency, speed is of the essence


Emergencies such as flooding or disease outbreaks have a devastating effect on affected farms. Not only is there the distress caused by animal ill-health, but the cost to the business can be severe.

Being declared with a notifiable disease ultimately results in depopulation and then a long process of cleansing and recovery before authorities will permit re-stocking and the potential restarting of normal operations. Each stage of this process can take a very long time, putting significant pressure on the business’s ability to continue. 

In addition, the moments after a flood or disease outbreak can be bewildering and scary: it’s not clear what needs to happen next. Who do you contact? What can you do to help your animals? You need an Emergency Response Plan.

Our Emergency Response Plan is a comprehensive action plan. Completed in conjunction with the biosecurity experts at Livetec, it outlines in chronological order all of the steps that have to be taken during an emergency.
