UW Madison Division of Extension’s online training course, Planning Livestock Emergency Transport Response (PELTR) is now taking registrations. The course is intended for first responders, including fire/EMS/law enforcement/State Patrol, county highway department and emergency management, public health, and safety communicators. Governmental administrators, veterinarians, and those experienced in handling livestock who may provide planning assistance to roadside incidents involving transported livestock are also invited. The goal is for participants to share the information within their organization/ departments to develop and improve their “toolbox” for responding to livestock transportation crashes. Topics addressed in the course include livestock behavior in times of stress, animal handling, movement and containment, extrication from trailers, biosecurity issues, euthanasia decision-making process, and handling mortalities.
