12/07/09 - UK: Vets and fire crews work to make horse rescues safer

 Vets and fire crews in the south-east held a "local rescue meeting" on Tuesday (7 July) as part of a continuing drive to make horse rescues safer and more efficient.

The initiative builds on the "emergency services protocol" launched in May 2007 by BEVA and the British Horse Society (BHS), after H&H reported a worrying variation in the way police and firemen handle 999 calls involving equines.

The protocol is soon to be relaunched and Horse & Hound would like to hear if your horse has been involved in an emergency where fire crew and/or police attended. Please email abi_butcher@ipcmedia.com
