Companies Attend Horse Rescue Training in Jacksonville

January 11th, 2009

On a freezing cold Sunday morning, approximately twenty Jacksonville members joined those from other companies at the Tranquility Manor Farms on Stansbury Mill Road for a day of large animal rescue training. In coordination with Equine Rescue Ambulance and members of the farm, fire department personnel were given a basic introduction to horse behavior and handling. In addition, two horses were put down humanely by trained medical staff. These horses needed to be put down for medical reasons and were used to practice maneuvering these large animals. Multiple demonstrations were done that allowed crews to take turns controlling handling the horses.

Jacksonville Units: E471, E473, A475, SU476, U477

Other Units: E442, E8, E55, BC11, multiple Harford County Companies
