SART Equipment Deployments and Contacts
SART has deployed Mobile Animal Response Equipment (MARE), Mini-MARE, livestock panels, and Animal Technical Rescue Trailers (ATR) at strategic locations in each RDSTF region as a region-wide asset. If a person/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 with the contacts below to obtain the equipment for use. Any questions or concerns may be directed to Greg Christy at (850)410-0902 or Stephen Barineau at (850)410-0959.
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.
