Farm and ranch emergency fair
Farms and ranches need to be prepared when disaster strikes. Learn effective strategies at the Sunday, May 4, Farm and Ranch Readiness Emergency Preparedness Fair at Atwood ranch in Glen Ellen.
In an emergency, animals as well as people need to be safely relocated. Californians value their pets and livestock, but are often unprepared for earthquakes, fires and floods.
There will be information booths and presentations on first-aid preparedness, pet/livestock emergency preparedness, micro-chipping, community disaster planning, farm/ranch readiness and more. There will also be demonstrations of equine rescues and transportation, animal evacuation, livestock relocation, first-aid, and more.
The event is free, lasts from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and is hosted by Atwood Ranch and U.C. Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. Guest parking is at Dunbar School, 11700 Dunbar Road in Glen Ellen, and attendees will take a shuttle to the ranch. Food and beverages will be available for sale.
