Animal Rescue in a Fire Dept.

The following video shows some of the gear on a Fire Rescue Squad.  The whole video is interesting but at the end they show a horse packaging slide.  Animal Rescue is becoming a recognized part of the fire service.  The Standard is to not use the same gear on people as you do on a large animal rescue so most Fire Departments are glad to have a resource that has gear designated to only Animal Rescue. Resources like the San Diego Humane Society – Technical Rescue Team, that carries all the same rope rescue gear as a Fire Rescue Squad, but is Animal Rescue specific are a valuable tool for the Fire Districts they serve.
