Farm & Food Care is currently seeking hosts for large animal rescue training sessions for first responders and emergency personnel.
Accidents involving livestock trailers present unique challenges for First Responders. Farm animals injured or trapped and roaming loose require special consideration at accident scenes. This course will cover the decision making process for accidents involving livestock trailers. Topics will include trailer design and extrication, animal behaviour; means to calm, rescue, capture and temporarily confine animals; laws and regulation; euthanasia protocols; and how to develop response teams. Attendees will receive one day of training in classroom and hands on in large animal rescue scene management.
For more information or to book a session: contact Bruce Kelly at [email protected] or call (519) 837-1326 ex. 292 or contact Victor MacPherson at [email protected].
