Preparing for Equine Disasters Workshop, May 13 & 14, 2017
Sat, 13 May 2017, 9:00 AM – Sun, 14 May 2017, 5:00 PM MDT
Imagine your worst fear as a horse owner: barn fire. Trailer rollover. Horse trapped in a frozen pond. There are crises that we cannot handle on our own without the assistance of emergency personnel, many of whom are not horse owners themselves.
Technical Large Animal Emergency Rescue provides emergency personnel and horse owners alike with the knowledge and tools to better assist with large animal emergencies.
TLAER training brings together people from all disciplines and introduces the latest concepts, techniques, procedures and equipment being used today—to learn to work together on a scene and build a great incident action plan, then extricate the animal safely for both the animal and the responders.
Registration: $150 + GST
Presented by Dr. Rebecca Gimenez, the workshop will include discussion of strategies such as working with fire rescue responders, what to do while waiting for the veterinarian to arrive and preparing an evacuation plan for your horses in case of a disaster.
Dr. Gimenez is the founder and president of the TLAER Inc and provides education and outreach internationally to teach safer and more efficient ways to prevent, prepare and respond to large animal incidents.
