The Emergency Equine Response Unit provides large animal rescue response training. Common training and response topics include trailer accidents, technical large animal rescue from mud, water, ice, low/high angle, and wildfire evacuations. Our classes are designed to provide training for firefighters, law enforcement, animal control, veterinary practitioners, USAR rescue personnel, and the general public.
Basic Equine Awareness and Rescue (BEAR) is an 8-hour awareness level course designed to provide equine rescue training; teaching basic horse awareness and emergency response for equine accidents.
Large Animal Rescue Operations (LARO) is an operations level course that encompasses aspects of large animal emergency response, and demonstrates what to do if a horse or other large animal gets stuck in mud, stranded on ice, trapped in an overturned trailer or other incident.
Large Animal Ice Rescue (LAIR) is an operations level course designed to provide first responder ice rescue training. LAIR includes large animal ice rescue training and water rescue training, with an emphasis on advanced horse rescue techniques. Small animal ice rescue techniques will also be discussed and demonstrated in class.
New for 2014 is a curriculum built to meet the needs of Animal Control Officers and First Responders working in disaster or technical rescue situations. In addition to technical large animal rescue courses, EERU is adding the ASAR Ropes/Rigging training (24 hours) and the ASAR Swiftwater Responder training (24 hours).
Please contact us if you are interested in scheduling training for your meeting, event or organization. We would be happy to provide these topics as described, a general large animal response class, or a more in-depth technical large animal rescue training.
