BC Emergency responders have a new piece of training equipment to help BC horses!

Thanks to a generous donation from the Equine Foundation of Canada, HCBC has purchased from Resquip in the UK a life sized equine mannequin! This is the first one in BC that is available for rescue training.

We can now offer hands on training in the safe humane extrication of horses. Proper rescue training is not just about getting a horse out of trouble. A rescue must include the methods for the best possible outcome for the horse and rescue personnel. The safety of the rescue crew and welfare of the horse are of vital importance. To offer the best possible training program, it is essential to have access to appropriate training equipment.

HCBC is thrilled to work with the support of Equine Foundation of Canada to offer BC’s emergency responders technical expertise and training equipment. For more information contact [email protected]
