Australia’s EAD response arrangements have been assessed as comprehensive and well-understood by system participants. These arrangements support planning for EAD response readiness, and decision-making within a response. Should we face an EAD incident involving feral pigs in future, emergency response decision-making will be dependent upon the specific scenario and informed by available scientific data and on ground expertise. This presentation will outline the approach to an EAD response from a Chief Veterinary Officer’s perspective, including relevant considerations about feral pigs.
