Protecting our Animals

Animal Safety During Emergencies

The MD of Foothills has been taking steps to ensure our Fire and Protective Services are even more informed on how to deal with our animals (large and small) in the event of an emergency.

On November 21st, MD First Responders and Staff attended workshop to provide an overview of the equine industry in Alberta and assist municipal bodies and personnel to incorporate equine into their existing emergency management plans.

The workshop was very well received and valuable for providing more tools for our First Responders to help provide us all with an even higher level of care for our animals.

Also, the story below shares some news for our other furry friends.
