Communication

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In every disaster, animals are in need of evacuation with their owners; or rescue from a dangerous situation because the pets were unable to be evacuated with their owners. Untrained first responders are not equipped to handle scared animals and often don't have the capture and transport equipment to rescue them safely. In addition, there are community planning gaps to help large animals, exotic animals, in addition to companion animals.

Instructors provide comprehensive and life-safety-enhancing planning, response, and functional training in cooperation with local, State, and Federal agencies .

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organization provides technical animal rescue training along with other services to both government and non-government agencies. We also offer public training to communities to help with disaster planning, evacuation skills, rescue skills, community networking, and an increase in local capability to help themselves before help can arrive. Additional things we offer include: Swiftwater/Floodwater training, Large Animal Rescue, Technical Rope Rescue Hazmat/Decon/Confined Space rescue for animals, Urban ASAR Applications, Heavy Extrication of exotic animals for Zoos, USAR Animal Specialist training for Government teams, Community Planning Workshops and Facilitation, Functional Excercises for all rescue and disaster response disciplines, Response Event Management, ASAR Specilalist MOU’s with States and so much more!

Most of the ASAR Instructors have 10-15 years of field and leadership experience in disaster response and planning. Our experts are networked across the Country to provide a hub of communication and cross-training for both Government and Non-Governmental agencies. We bridge the gap between Local, State, and Federal resources and plan to provide better communication and training with our unique perspective and situational awareness.

We currently offer services and training nationwide with a team of 6 contract instructors and 20 support staff. We have worked with all levels of disaster response and Emergency Support Functions for the last 10 years and continue to grow interest as animals become more of a priority in life safety evacuation planning. We will be using social media in addition to training programs and community workshop facilitation to bring continuity of operations to all levels of disaster response.

We started in 2005 with just one program that focused on technical large animal rescue. Now we offer many programs that deal with small animal rescue, large animal rescue, exotic animal applications, and are accredited internationally by the International Technical Rescue Association. Our goals in the next 3-5 years is to develop practical application management training so we can bridge the gap between "boots-on-the-ground" resources and high level Emergency Management. If we can create a faster, more efficient way of communicating continuity of operations for both mass care and animal rescue, we will change the way a disaster response is deployed and increase animal reunification with their owners. That's what it's all about. Keeping the family together.
