    Name: Technical Large Animal Emergency Rescue Course - Corvallis
    Date: June 6, 2019 - June 7, 2019
    Event Description:
    The Oregon Horse Council is excited to bring back to Oregon the 2-day Awareness course in Technical Large Animal Emergency Rescue (TLAER).  These sessions are taught by world-renowned expert, Dr. Rebecca (Gimenez) Husted.  This course will also be offered in Hermiston (June 19-20) and Wilsonville (July 25-26).

    This training is open to anyone, but will be specifically geared towards fire department personnel, first responders, veterinarians, search & rescue members, animal rescue specialists, livestock breeders, horse trainers, and any large animal owner that want to be more prepared.  Our organization decided to do this training after we had heard from several first responders that there hadn’t been a course like this in the region and that they needed the training.  We have been surprised at the enthusiasm for these trainings –  100 people attend the last session in McMinnville and we expect future courses to sell out as well. 

    COURSE DESCRIPTION:  This 2-day intense training will show you the proper was to respond and prepare for large animal emergencies, such as our northwest community needs to round out its ability to respond to a variety of emergencies.  The TLAER training courses introduces the latest concepts, techniques, procedures and equipment being used today – to learn to work together on a scene and build a great incident action plan, then extricate the animal safely for both the animal and responders.  All who attend both full days will receive a certificate of completion.

    *NOTE: the majority of the Awareness course is classroom instuction with pictures and videos.  The Operations level course is significantly more hands on, however participants must be recent graduates of the Awareness level before they can register for an Operations course.

    The instructor communicates and networks with people all around the world to develop innovative tactics, techniques and procedures to share with their students. TLAER, Inc’s ongoing research and development focus on simple and practical applications with student-suggested improvements. Courses are updated constantly, allowing students to learn the most current methods and equipment in each course. Instructors are horse and cattle people so they know about the behavior of animals and people and how that applies on-scene.

    **The TLAER courses produced by the Oregon Horse Council do qualify for Oregon Vet Board CE Credits.

    Here are a few testimonies from previous Oregon course attendees:

    • “Rebecca Husted is a wonderful speaker.  If you work with any large animal, this training is a must!  Rebecca spoke about planning, implementation, special handling, emergencies, disaters, HAZMAT.  Very informative and as a beginner, I feel confident to use the skills and information I've learned.” - Lisa A., Southern Oregon Emergency Aid (SOEA)
