If agricultural producers in British Columbia were involved in an accident while transporting livestock, they would soon be in a cellular emergency response unit.
The implementation of the pilot challenge was launched on Tuesday (September 27), showing two emergency trailers, which will be stationed in Reduced Continent and East Kootenay.
Each trailer should be equipped with rescue tools – similar to horse and cow reins, sorting and beading panels and instruments – first support kit, safety gear and hearth fire extinguisher. Emergency trailers are deployed to assist in the event of an accident with a trailer or livestock liner on or beside a highway in these two areas.
“The selection of the East Kootenays trailer was based primarily on the plethora of line operations next to highway three halls and the latest variety of incidents. The trailer for the Lesser Continent will target horses,” the Ministry of Agriculture and Dietetics said in an announcement earlier this month. Instructs Black Press Media.
The challenge is led by the Emergency Livestock Response Committee and funded by state and federal governments. If profitable, the council plans to deploy more trailers across the province.
