Horse Emergency Evacuation Team ~ H.E.E.T.
Since 2003, this non-profit organization has assisted fire departments, police departments, the California Highway Patrol and SLO County Sheriff’s Department in providing emergency services for large animals, including horses, cattle, llamas and more. Volunteers work with CAL FIRE, San Luis Obispo County Fire Chiefs Association, SLO County Sheriff’s Office and the CHP to implement training programs that included the incident command system, Red Cross disaster services, first aid/CPR, horse handling, trailer handling, fire safety, large animal rescue, horse triage and horse first aid. Classes are ongoing and expanding so all necessary areas are covered.
Volunteers lend their time and equipment at no cost to the county or owners of rescued animals. In addition, HEET works with veterinarians, feed stores, ranch owners, fairground officials and local feedlots to ensure all evacuated animals receive the best care possible.
