2022 FACCT Livestock Emergency Response Training
From livestock trailer incidents, to barn fires, disaster evacuations to loose livestock, from rural communities to urban cities. Accidents and disasters involving livestock require a coordinated approach between first responders (fire- fighters, police), producers, government agencies and volunteers. There are a variety of guidelines available that address planned responses to such incidents. However, most include little information on how to handle livestock during times of crisis. Emergency handling of stressed or injured livestock is the biggest safety issue for the handler and the biggest welfare issue for the animal. Even those with a livestock background do not understand the true complexity of emergencies and disasters that involve livestock. An animal in an emergency or disaster event are very different than an animal in a farm setting. This program is focused on providing awareness and guidance so those responding to incidents involving livestock are aware of the hazards and have the tools to make informed decisions on everything from animal handling to extrication to euthanasia.
