ABSTRACT

Homeland Security Presidential Directive 9: Federal Food and Agriculture Contamination and Disposal Roles and Responsibilities   [open pdf - 1MB]

"This document describes the general Federal roles and responsibilities for decontamination and disposal in response to animal, crop, and food incidents. It is consistent with the U.S. Government's National Response Plan (NRP) and Annexes and is intended to clarify and document existing relationships among the Federal community rather than replace existing plans or agreements. Federal roles are described for incidents at three levels of magnitude: 1) Local/Limited Response, 2) State/Regional Response, and 3) National Response. Discussions are limited to incidents involving chemical or biological agents. Radiological incidents are not addressed."
