SART Equipment Deployments and Contacts


SART has strategically deployed Mobile Animal Response Equipment (MARE) trailers, Mini-MARE trailers, livestock panels, and Animal Technical Rescue Trailers (ATR) in each of Florida's seven regions to better serve as a region-wide asset during emergency response. If a person or organization is in need of this equipment, prior approval must be obtained from the Emergency Management Director in the requesting county. A request may then be made to SART by contacting Dr. Greg Christy at (850) 410-0902 or LeiAnna Tucker at (850) 410-0920.


MARE Unit: A MARE Unit (Mobile Animal Response Equipment) is a 16’ open-sided steel livestock trailer stocked with small animal response necessities such as plastic animal crates, leashes, water and food bowls, generator, and cleaning equipment.


Mini-MARE Unit: A Mini-MARE Unit is a smaller, more mobile enclosed trailer, with 100 bowls and small animal crates of various sizes and a 20x10-foot shelter, but without a generator and some of the miscellaneous items in the full MARE Unit.


Livestock Panels: Livestock panels can be used for the quick setup of a temporary pen for livestock.


ATR Unit: An ATR (Animal Technical Rescue) Unit is an enclosed trailer containing equipment for both livestock and smaller animal technical rescues. Included are a portable A-frame/crane unit, rope systems, webbing, harnesses for large and small animals, and rescue glide for moving animals, a mud extrication system, and safety equipment for the responders.
