Join Boulder Office of Emergency Management and Colorado Horse Rescue for this collaborative preparedness workshop focusing on skills for you and your animals before, during, and after disasters. Over the course of your time with us you’ll expand your knowledge around alert and warning notifications, preparedness supplies and skills needed for horse or ranch and farm owners, assessing your personal risk, and creating a plan that will provide a strong foundation for making it through any type of disaster. This workshop will give participants the opportunity to learn in-depth about equine behavior, trailer loading, and other tips and tricks that will help you and your animals through all stages of a disaster.

Participants should dress appropriately for weather and bring water, snacks, or other necessities. This workshop will be held in the indoor arena for the first hour, and outdoor arena for the remainder of the time.
