    "This report was prepared as the result of an agreement between the Communicable Disease Center and the Division of Health Mobilization entered into July 1, 1963, to explore the role of veterinarians in the post disaster period. It contains recommendations for accomplishing preparedness in these roles- -determining the training needed and evaluating the capabilities of the profession to provide this training. This report was prepared by the Veterinary Public Health Section, Communicable Disease Center, Public Health Service, U. S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare, Atlanta, Georgia, with the guidance and concurrence of a study group of veterinarians representing veterinary practitioners, the American Veterinary Medical Association, the American Animal Hospital Association, Military veterinarians, and veterinarians of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, who met in Washington in September 1963. More than 100 letters were sent to veterinarians in many specialty areas and in all parts of the United States, requesting guidance from them in defining "The Role of the Veterinarian in National Disaster. On April 8. 1964, the Deans or their representatives from 17 of the schools of veterinary medicine met at the Communicable Disease Center in Atlanta, Georgia to review this report. Special emphasis was placed on the current training capabilities of the profession, on what training would be required to assure proficiency in disaster veterinary medicine, and on when this training should be given to be most effective. The conclusions of this meeting have been incorporated in the report." - p. [1]
