Hosted by ARL Iowa!  Large Animal Rescue Operations (LARO) is essential for firefighters, law enforcement, animal control, humane societies and emergency animal response teams. Incidents that involve large animals require special considerations and training. LARO simulates those incidents by using scenario training with both live horses and life-size, weighted, articulated horse mannequins that allow training for virtually any LARO situation. There will be a different team rescue scenario for each day. This training is designed to equip responders with a variety of options to handle most large animal situations; including situational awareness to recognize when knowledge and skills may be out of scope. No previous experience needed with large animals to attend this training. Please note check-in starts at 7:30am on the 18th; and the event will happen rain or shine.
