This class is intended to help people know what to do immediately following an emergency that happens either close to home, or at home; the intention is to help a responder feel comfortable with handling the situation. We cover preventative measures, pain source identification, stretching, how to properly take vitals and identifying what is normal vs. abnormal, basic wound care (bandaging), identifying when to call the vet and knowing what information to gather before that call, eye injuries, bites & stings, seizure, how to right a cast horse, shock, poison, burns, lameness/hoof issues, nosebleed, choke, collapse, heat exhaustion, shock and identifying signs of colic. We also provide a 50+ page handbook to put in your first aid kits for reference.
This course has no pre-requisite and is a MUST for any livestock owner! We will cover fire prevention; planning for, and executing, safe evacuation procedures, including determining an evacuation site; hidden dangers/things to consider; and responding to first aid emergencies, including consideration of transportation routes, staying onsite, the 72-hour plan (and how to extend that plan), and being prepared for outages. It also covers what to do in natural disasters such as flooding, wild fires, ice storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, and more. Don't be unprepared! We can help you help your animals. Though we cover “typical vs. panicked” equine behavior in different types of disasters, this course is suitable for any livestock operation, not just horses, and is supported by some insurance industries.
*All attendees receive a Certificate of Completion for both classes
