Large Animal Rescue Awareness – presented by University of Illinois Fire Service Institute
The McHenry County College Fire Science department and the University of Illinois Fire Service Institute are offering the second annual Large Animal Rescue Awareness training on Saturday, February 7, 2015 from 8am-noon at the Luecht Conference Center at McHenry County College in Crystal Lake, IL.
Illinois and Wisconsin are home to a wide variety of large animals (horses, cattle, pigs, goats, llamas, alpacas, exotics, etc.). Large animal incidents can occur anywhere at any given moment, requiring the coordination and cooperation of multiple governmental agencies, non-governmental organizations and civilians to ensure a swift and safe resolution to the incident. Attendees will learn how to safely and effectively handle large animals in emergency situations.
Dr. Deke Carls brings the perspectives of both a firefighter and a large animal veterinarian to this lively and information-packed presentation. Class is free and open to all first responders (fire, police, animal control, conservation); equine veterinarians and vet techs; barn owners and managers; horse owners; and the public. Pre-registration is preferred at: http://svy.mk/1ImHuFm or call (815) 455-8565.
