There is an AWARENESS level Technical Large Animal Emergency Rescue (TLAER) training event being held in Aiken, SC on the 22-23 of JANUARY, 2011. (It was scheduled for GA but just changed to SC!) Certification is available for those that complete the course.
There will be multiple demonstrations and coverage of a broad range of topics from safety and prevention to on-scene response techniques, tactics and procedures when dealing with large animals. Those of you that have the TLAER book (from Wiley/Blackwell) are encouraged to purchase and bring your copy for signatures.
Please put it on your calendar or send to friends, coworkers and family that have been trying to attend a TLAER event in the Southeast. We want this to be a great opportunity to get horse and cattle people, veterinarians, firefighters, paramedics and the local emergency management together.
More details are available by emailing Dr Rebecca Gimenez email@example.com - Pre-registration is $125 including lunch both days, snacks and drinks. (At the door is $150 and there is a limit on the size of the room.)
