All Hazards Preparedness for Animals in Disasters

This awareness level course will provide tools to protect, respond to, and recover from the consequences of disasters, such as fire, flood, heat, earthquake, tornadoes, hurricanes, hazardous materials and catastrophic disease exposure, involving animals in rural communities.

The course will introduce participants to the unique issues that must be considered and addressed when animals are involved in an emergency such as safe animal handling, animal evacuation, animal sheltering, humane euthanasia and carcass disposal, inclusion of animal management into existing ICS structures, federal support available during recovery, and unique considerations for conducting jurisdictional assessments and mapping evacuation routes. All content will be presented in a blended learning style in which introductory material will be delivered online and hands-on, problem-solving activities will be completed in small groups at a one-day instructor lead training.
