Vet Reserve Corp ready for agroterrorism

One of the latest teams to come on board in the response plan for agroterrorism is the Reserve Veterinary Corps. This volunteer group of veterinarians, formed about a year ago, are equipped with the latest in GPS, cameras and other equipment making them the “eyes and ears” in the field. In event of a animal disease outbreak or agroterrorism attack, the corps would be activated as field agents, providing information on disease patterns and locations.
