Large Animal Rescue Training
EERU/ASAR training topics include trailer accidents, technical large animal rescue from mud, water, ice, low/high angle, animal search & rescue techniques, and wildfire evacuations.
The Emergency Equine Response Unit/ASAR team 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, US&R rescue personnel, and the general public.
This curriculum was 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 added the ASAR Ropes/Rigging training (24 hours) and the ASAR Swiftwater Responder training (24 hours).
