The National Environmental Health Association is proud to partner with Vector Disease Control International (VDCI) to bring you a co-sponsored webinar on Emergency Response Mosquito Management: Turnkey Solutions and Responsible Control.
Mosquito control may be necessary after natural disasters such as hurricanes and major floods. As waters associated with these events begin to recede, both nuisance and vector mosquito species can surge in abundance and consequently complicate relief efforts and cause public health concerns. When situations like this arise many state and county agencies implement emergency response plans and rely on the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) or private contractors for assistance in reducing mosquito populations. The goal is to alter arbovirus transmission cycles and create an environment that reduces stress to a displaced public and relief workers.
In this webinar, Dr. Broox Boze of VDCI will discuss the multiple steps required to implement a responsible emergency response mosquito management plan. This will include the coordination with local, state, and federal governments, challenges with funding as well as preparation and logistics. Is your community prepared?
