Until that one time that someone has tampered with it, or it has not been handled properly, or transported properly, or not maintained at a proper temperature and you and 100+ people in your community are sick… the hospital is full and needing more ventilators because some folks are having difficulty breathing…
If it happens in your community, and your local emergency operations center needs to open, as well as the state emergency operations center, how will it work? Are you ready?
Plan to attend “Managing Food Emergencies: Strategies for a Community Response” on February 8-9 at Roadrunner Food Bank in Albuquerque.
This course will cover food emergency topics:
· Emergency Operations Center Activation
· Information Gathering – Surveillance and Triggers
· Defining Response Actions
· Communication and Coordination
· Transitioning to Recovery
· After-Action Reviews and Lessons Learned

Please share with anyone that might appreciate this class and that should be a part of the larger discussion of preparing New Mexico for a food emergency!
