Last night I reposted a post I did 5 years ago on basic information in regards to it being prepared just in case and went into a lot more detail in regards to things that history shows us can happen in Canada.
Today I am going to repost a post I did from last year where I took a day course and came home with at home study book and planner on tips on what to do in regards to livestock. The focus of this post was touching more on barn fires as there had been a lot of them that winter, with many animals lives lost.
However there was very good information in the booklet in regards to flooding and livestock as well.
The course I took on sunday was put together by Equi-Health Canada
It was the Disaster planning and Emergency Preparedness Course
“A MUST for any livestock owner, this course will train you in fire prevention, planning for and executing save evacuation procedures, hidden dangers and responding to first aid emergencies. It also covers what to do in natural disasters such as flooding, ice storms, hurricanes, tornadoes and more. Don’t be unprepared – we can help you help your animals. This course is suitable for any livestock operation, not just horses.”
These are not cheap courses but they are solid and good.. they send you home with homework and work to do on your own place, they are a great mix of learning and hands on..
I really like this about the course, you get to do drills and hands on with the horses and work in the barn and more.. Sorry…

J > Our main risks are: hurricane force winds ; coastal flooding from storm surge ; combination of the two (as happened in 2005). Are there any books on this subject you might recommend?
hmmm, let me look at what I have and get back to you on that..
