2. They have hosted an EHC sanctioned Advanced Equine Emergency First Aid clinic and have staff or volunteers onsite with current advanced certification.
3. They have hosted an EHC sanctioned Disaster Planning and Emergency Preparedness clinic and have staff or volunteers onsite with current certification.
4. They have an ongoing relationship with Equi-Health Canada, remaining up-to-date on new health and emergency protocols, and host a minimum of 2 EHC sanctioned courses per year, with any currently certified Equi-Health Canada Instructor.
Facilities who meet this criteria are awarded an annual CERTIFIED SAFE certificate to hang on their facility wall, and will have their facility listed here with website link and contact information at no charge.
If you have hosted the above three courses in the past year, please contact us to have your facility added to the Certified Safe listings.
