Prepare 2 Respond (P2R) is a USDA funded grant project that is free and a great way for youth to understand animal disease responses at local events.
This is a learner-engaged program designed to empower exposition employees, volunteers & first responders by building awareness of biosecurity and disease mitigation, resulting in a more rapid response and reduced impact. The goal of this program is to allow all sectors of the local fair to engage staff and volunteers on how to respond to an animal emergency at your fair.
There are 3 short modules, Introduction, First Responder and Livestock Event Personnel, that all staff, volunteers and first responders of fairs and should review and adopt the principles.
