WHY SHOULD THE TEAM BE CALLED?

Technical Large Animal Rescues

Specialized consideration must be given to animals involved in technical large animal
rescues to provide the utmost safety to the animal and rescuers. Specifically,
specialized handling and rescue techniques are needed to successfully
complete a safe rescue.

The BCTFR Team has received specialized training in technical large animal rescue
and continues to expand their knowledge of handling skills and rescue techniques.
Specialized equipment is often needed for technical large animal rescues. The
BCTFR Team has access to this equipment and the training to utilize it safely.

Technical Farm Rescues  
Though techniques used in farm rescues appear similar to typical vehicle rescue
techniques, the concepts and application of rescue techniques are vastly different
and require specialized training skills and knowledge for the safety of the victim and
rescuers.
The BCTFR Team has received specialized training in farm rescue techniques.
