A C.A.R.T. is an organized group of individuals that have received training in the Incident Command System, National Incident Management System and HAZMAT Awareness, and have agreed to volunteer their time to assist animals impacted by a disaster/emergency. Some team members may have additional skills and specialized training in various animal handling, health, husbandry and disaster response-related functions. In general, these teams are organized and utilized for emergency/disaster response at the county level.
Sullivan County Division of Public Safety along with representatives from NYS Agriculture and Markets will be holding an introductory meeting to gauge interest in starting a C.A.R.T. for Sullivan County. 26 New York Counties already have some version of a C.A.R.T. in place.
This program is free. Registration is requested in advance online.
Contact the CCESC office to request any special accommodations.
In partnership with Sullivan County Division of Public Safety and NYS Ag and Markets
