A MUST for any livestock owner, this course will train you in fire prevention, planning for and executing safe evacuation procedures, hidden dangers and responding to first aid emergencies. It also covers what to do in natural disasters such as flooding, wildfires, ice storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, and more.
Don't be unprepared - we can help you help your animals. This course is suitable for any livestock operation, not just horses.
Keeping your horse safe is your number one priority. Is your trailer safe and do you know what your horse experiences during a collision? What are the protocols when involved in an accident, and laws around hauling? Do you know if the size and layout of your trailer provides your horse comfort and stability, or if is putting strain on their body, leading to potential injury?
This hands-on course will teach you how to keep your horse as safe as possible and who to contact in the unthinkable.
Many first responders have never been exposed to working with horses and livestock yet are called in the line of duty to deal with these animals in fires, accidents, natural disasters, escapes, and more.
This one (or two-day optional) training exclusive to first responders teaches them how to keep themselves and the public safe, while having the knowledge and confidence to work with all types of livestock, with a focus on horses and what you have available in the moment.
Group rates available.
