This course provides responders with training on all-hazards food emergency support operations. For the purpose of this course, food emergencies may include natural disasters, human-made disasters, foodborne outbreaks, or food adulterations that impact the food chain and have the potential for mass consequences. The course focuses on the performance and coordination of local, state, and federal agency operations during the response to and recovery from such emergencies. The course covers the four main phases of a food emergency response: incident identification and investigation, containment and control, disposal and decontamination, and recovery.
