RedRover Responders Volunteer Training Workshop: Sacramento, CA @ Cap’s Pizza and Tap House
Apr 13 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

The RedRover Responders volunteer corps are the backbone of our efforts to provide lifesaving care and sheltering for animal victims of natural disasters, puppy mills, hoarding, and other cases of cruelty and neglect. We welcome volunteers at all levels of experience, from a casual pet-lover to an experienced rescuer or animal care professional.

Our training program consists of attending a four hour in-person workshop and completing IS-100c, an online FEMA class.

Facilitated by an experienced RedRover Responders volunteer, the workshop helps you understand what it’s like to deploy with RedRover to a disaster or animal cruelty case. Group work and exercises will guide pre-deployment decision-making and packing, solidify understanding of key Standard Operating Guidelines, and prepare you for the realities of response.

The workshop registration fee of $45 includes a volunteer handbook, the volunteer t-shirt and certificate of completion that are mailed to you after attending the in-person volunteer workshop.

Large Animal Rescue Operation (LARO) training @ Alfred State College Farm
Jun 19 – Jun 20 all-day

Large Animal Rescue Operations (LARO) is essential for firefighters, law enforcement, animal control, humane societies and emergency animal response teams. Incidents that involve large animals require special considerations and training. LARO simulates those incidents by using scenario training with both live horses and life-size, weighted, articulated horse mannequins that allow training for virtually any LARO situation. There will be a different team rescue scenario for each day.

This training is designed to equip responders with a variety of options to handle most large animal situations; including situational awareness to recognize when knowledge and skills may be out of scope. No previous experience needed with large animals to attend this training.

Please note: Check-in starts at 7:30 a.m. on June 19 and the event will happen rain or shine.
