Equine Response Team Training
ERT is a team of specially trained volunteers that provide emergency evacuation and temporary sheltering for horses and livestock in need of evacuation and care. Situations requiring ERT include wildfires; mudslides or other natural disasters; manmade disasters; and the rescue of large numbers of animals from inhumane conditions. ERT team volunteers receive specialized training by Department authorized instructors regarding safe and humane animal handling, trailer loading and transportation, operating emergency animal shelter facilities and fire behavior and safety. ERT volunteers also educate the public regarding the importance of preparing for emergencies.
