When thinking of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, most probably envision the FEMA jackets and trailers seen at the aftermath of natural disasters like Hurricane Katrina. But emergency preparedness encompasses agricultural disasters, too, including disease outbreaks such as this year's wave of avian influenza.
