Horse Emergency Evacuation Team Training

HEET will be having our last training of the year on July 9th. We are combining 2 trainings into one meeting. The first part of the training will be equine first aid with Andy Dibbern, DVM, who is also our State Equine Emergency Network Coordinator.  This class will cover shock, bleeding, bandaging of wounds, colic, burns, how to handle an unruly horse, smoke inhalation, plus much more. After a short break, where a continental breakfast will be served, Dr. Dibbern will be joined by CAL FIRE Airport Station 21 to give a demonstration of the Anderson Sling on a live horse.  The Anderson Sling is used for vertical lifts when an animal is unable to be moved any other way.  Also, a demo of the Rescue Glides will be given.  The glides are used to “slide” a downed animal up a hill. HEET was instrumental in supplying both the Anderson Sling and the Rescue Glides to the county of San Luis Obispo by donations received from SLOPOST and the SLO Chapter California Dressage Society.  Both the Anderson Sling and Rescue Glides are housed with CAL FIRE to use whenever the need arises.


We would like to remind everyone that you do not need to be a member HEET to join us for our trainings. They are open to anyone that is interested in learning more about the training subject and or learn more about HEET and what we do.
