Emergency and Disaster Planning Workshop

Presented by the PVMA, VCA Northwest Veterinary Specialists, and VCA SE Portland Animal Hospital


Business Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP) provides a veterinary business a platform on which to build, over time, a more resilient practice that is better prepared to deal with common and not so common disruptions in business.  COOP is a way of doing business and becomes part of your practice culture when it is done correctly.  It is an investment in being prepared to minimize impacts on your business when things are not normal.  Whether it is an extended power disruption or a severe natural disaster, a COOP plan will get your business back up and running faster with fewer disruptions to your clients.



Dr. Warren Hess, Director AVMA’s Division of Animal and Public Health

Dr. Hess is an assistant director in the AVMA’s Division of Animal and Public Health. Dr. Hess graduated from Colorado State University in 1989. He worked in small animal practice with an emphasis on birds and other exotic animals until 2004 when he began working for the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food (UDAF) where he served as a field veterinarian, assistant state veterinarian and 18 months as acting state veterinarian. Dr. Hess became involved early in his career with organized veterinary medicine and was elected president of the Utah Veterinary Medical Association (UVMA) in 2000. Dr. Hess has led several state and national organizations including serving as president of the National Alliance of Animal and Agricultural Emergency Programs (NASAAEP). Dr. Hess was voted Veterinarian of the Year in 2014 by the UVMA. 


Animal Welfare Leaders from our community will also be participating in a panel discussion, sharing their experiences and an overview of resources and structure that is in place in our area. We hope to also facilitate a discussion about the role veterinary professionals and practice could play in the event of larger emergencies.
