The "Blue Book" refers to the Animal Welfare Act and Animal Welfare Regulations published by USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS). The "Blue Book" is published as a tool to improve compliance among our licenses and registrants and to enhance the consistency of inspections.
The High Alert Institute is proud to provide its own Disaster and Business Contingency Plan as a sample to help guide you in the creation of your organization?s contingency plan and compliance documents. The High Alert Disaster and Business Contingency Plan was generated using the DHS Business Continuity Planning Suite software. Our plan includes risk analysis and planning for all of the National Planning Scenarios as well as the specific threats of concern as listed by USDA-APHIS, FEMA and DHS. This document is property of the High Alert Institute, and use of the content of this plan is granted to those who download the plans.
