First responders, emergency medical technicians, veterinarians, firefighters, and other emergency/rescue personnel are encouraged to register for the Technical Large-Animal Emergency Rescue (TLAER) Training, provided cooperatively by USRider and Eastern Kentucky University (EKU).

USRider and EKU first began offering this training opportunity in March 2005 to educate fire/rescue personnel, first responders, veterinarians, and horse enthusiasts about techniques and procedures to assist large animals involved in transportation accidents and other emergencies.

 “We’ve found that while emergency responders are trained experts in human rescue and extrication, they often times have no training in large-animal rescue,” said Bill Riss, USRider general manager. “Because of this lack of training, responders are put at great risk. Moreover, in many accidents and disasters, animals without life-threatening injuries are injured further or even killed by use of incorrect rescue techniques.”

Scheduled for March 30–April 1, the TLAER Training is open to EKU students and the general public. Instructors will include Tomas Gimenez, DrMedVet, and Rebecca Gimenez, PhD—authorities in large-animal rescue—and the session will include 30 hours of classroom instruction and hands-on training with live animals
