Emergency and Disaster Preparedness Resources Available on AAEP Web Site

American Association of Equine Practitioners

The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) reminds horse owners and veterinarians that when an emergency or natural disaster strikes, it is in the best interest of the horse for everyone to be prepared. With this in mind, the AAEP has updated its online equine emergency and disaster preparedness resources in time for the start of the Atlantic hurricane season. To access these materials, visit http://www.aaep.org/emergency_prep.htm.

Items available include the AAEP’s “Hurricane Equine Evacuation” informational plan, which provides resources for those living in coastal states, as well as the association’s popular “Emergency and Disaster Preparedness Guidelines.”

“As we’ve learned from recent disasters, preparedness can mean the difference between life and death for humans and horses alike, ” said James Hamilton, DVM, chairman of the AAEP Emergency and Disaster Preparedness Committee. “Housing for the animals, food and water supplies, and evacuation transportation options are just a few of the key decisions that should be made before an emergency occurs.”

The Emergency and Disaster Preparedness Committee is dedicated to the development of beneficial resources for veterinarians and horse owners. While its work is ongoing, the Committee invites others to support its efforts by providing updated information regarding state and national animal emergency management information. For more information about the AAEP’s emergency and disaster preparedness efforts, Web site or printed materials, please contact Keith Kleine, director of industry relations, at 859-233-0147 or kkleine@aaep.org.

The American Association of Equine Practitioners, headquartered in Lexington, Ky., was founded in 1954 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the health and welfare of the horse. Currently, the AAEP reaches more than 5 million horse owners through its over 9,000 members worldwide and is actively involved in ethics issues, practice management, research and continuing education in the equine veterinary profession and horse industry.
