NJ CART 2012 Year in Review
NJDA and AEWG with the assistance of the Middlesex CART and OEM will host a CART review at the Middlesex Fire Academy in Sayreville, NJ. In past years, during the annual AEWG Symposium, we have often included a spot for a CART Year in Review Session. As this has been a very popular part of the symposium and 2012 saw quite a bit of CART activity, we decided the CARTs needed their own day dedicated to sharing all their achievements from the previous calendar year. In addition to CART leaders, all CART members will be invited to this meeting. We also will be inviting attendees from the AEWG (Animal Emergency Working Group), our local, state, and federal partners in animal emergency planning, preparedness and response, and other animal industry stakeholders.
