April HEET Training


Hello current and potential HEET members,

Please set aside Saturday, April 1, for our Anderson Sling Training!

This hands-on class will be for HEET members and local veterinarians. Not a member? We will have membership applications with us! Not sure if you want to join? Come and watch! (Hands-on training is for members only--thank our insurance company!) The training session will take place at the Farm Supply in San Luis Obispo (off of Tank Farm Road). Please prepare to arrive by 8:45 am so you can get your pick of the donuts! The session begins promptly at 9:00 am. CAL FIRE Airport Station 21 will be present with Rescue 21, as the Anderson sling is in their possession. This will be your opportunity to get your hands dirty and get some experience with this valuable recovery tool, which can be used in combination with a helicopter for aerial rescues or with a tripod for lifting a downed horse.

Hope to see you there! Any questions? Call John 805-478-3297 or Julie 805-264-3422

Fire Safety and Procedures Class

We will be at CAL FIRE Station 21 at San Luis Obispo Airport, 4671 Broad Street on February 4th for this annual training. Class starts promptly at 8:58 a.m. Please be on time as our firemen are on a tight schedule. If you have never attended one of these trainings, this is your year, even if you have in the past, it is worth the drive to come again! I have been 10 years in a row and I learn something new every year! Not only will you learn how the command center works during a fire, but you will learn many valuable things that you can apply to home fires as well. Great info and a great time. Donuts and coffee will be served for free!  This training is open to everyone, if you are not already a member, membership will be availble for you after the training!

We will be having a live drill with live horses at this event. If you are a trailering team, this is a must do event! We would like to get as many people as possible here for this event. If you are at all interested in helping us move horses/animals during a disaster/fire, attending this event will tell you if you are suited for trailering or sheltering. Even if you can't bring your trailer and/or your partner, come anyway. We have members that are willing to have you ride along with them to test your skills. It would be great if we could put some faces with the names of some of our members. Hope to see everyone there!

Julie Monser is the person to call if you have any questions or just want to let her know you will be there 805-264-3422

Please note: 8:30 am is the gathering time so we know how many rigs we have and we can start promptly at 9 with the actual evacuation process. See you there!
