Bringing volunteers together into one group ensures a more effective response in a disaster. To get the right people for any situation, SART helped develop the Florida State Animal Response Coalition (Florida SARC). This not-for-profit group maintains a database with volunteer information such as their schedule availability, preferred jobs when responding, and completed trainings and requirements. Volunteer coordinators can instantly access that information to alert volunteers for disaster response.
In partnership with the Florida SARC, SART created Awareness and Operations level classes that provide the expertise and practical experience required to become a professional disaster animal responder. Both courses are state-certified by the Florida Division of Emergency Management.*
