Animal Health Emergency Management

National Preparedness and Incident Coordination Center (NPIC)

As leaders in animal health emergency management, we develop strategies and policies for effective incident management and help to coordinate incident response. As a liaison to outside emergency management groups, we ensure that Veterinary Services (VS) emergency management policies, strategies, and responses are consistent with national and international standards.

NPIC works closely with other Surveillance, Preparedness, and Response Services (SPRS) Centers, including the SPRS Logistics Center, One Health Coordination Center, Animal Health Commodity Centers (Cattle; Avian, Swine & Aquatic; Sheep, Goat, Cervid & Equine), and the 6 Districts which are responsible for field operations across the United States.
