The NC Animal Emergency Response Working Group has developed this awareness course to introduce skills and resources for responders that may be involved in animal incidents. Have you ever thought of what you would do when you respond to an incident that involves a horse trailer, animal stuck in a pond, loose livestock obstructing traffic, or a barn fire? Would you be called to assist? If the answer is possibly then this training is for you. Some groups that would benefit fire/rescue departments, law enforcement, animal control/animal services, veterinarians, emergency management, technical animal response organizations, animal associations, trained wrecker services personnel with equipment, state agencies such as NCDA&CS and NC Wildlife Services. The AERWG manual can be found at ncaerwg.org under the Documents tab. The course will give awareness level training to responders on: Applying basic ICS/NIMS for animal incidents, the Notification Process, Scene Arrival and Assessment, Responder Safety, Biosecurity, Animal Behavior, An introduction to animal technical rescue techniques and scenarios, Euthanasia/Depopulation, Animal Relocation, and Mortality Management.
NCVMB approved 3.0 CE’s for veterinarians and veterinary technicians for completion of this course.
