Disaster Preparedness Training and Response for Animals
We provide education to first responders, veterinary professionals, and our community at large.
Training topics include:
• emergency preparedness
• first responder safety
• animal behavior and trauma response
• humane rescue
• effective evacuation & sheltering protocols
Community outreach programs include:
• animal first aid
• emergency preparedness.
Napa CART works diligently with the Napa County Office of Emergency Services (OES) and local agencies to put effective communications and systems in place to ensure the best possible outcome for animals in Napa County during an emergency, accident, or natural disaster. Napa CART participates in a state-wide CART Collective to augment preparedness and enhance options for mutual aid assistance.
Napa CART acquires animal-specific rescue equipment to ensure the best outcome for animals involved in disasters, emergencies, or accidents. This specialty gear supports training and rescue operations and is available to our first responders when requested.
How can you help?
Be prepared when the next disaster strikes.
The animals will thank you.
ARE YOU A FIRST RESPONDER OR VETERINARY PROFESSIONAL?
Safe, humane rescue, evacuation and sheltering of animals requires well-trained first responders, veterinary professionals and volunteers. Become trained in animal trauma care and rescue through our training programs for professionals.
Trained community volunteers provide much needed additional support and resources during natural disasters and emergencies. Volunteer and become certified to provide assistance in emergency situations or simply volunteer to be on standby to provide valuable non-technical support during a disaster response.
Donations enable us to train first responders, veterinary professionals and community volunteers, as well as provide advocacy, specialty equipment and care that ensures the best outcome for animals in emergency situations.
