SART Equipment Request


SART has strategically deployed Mobile Animal Response Equipment (MARE) trailers, Mini-MARE trailers, livestock panels, and Animal Technical Rescue Trailers (ATR) across the State for emergency response.

If a local government agency needs to request this equipment during a non-declared event, then the requesting county’s Emergency Management Director must send a request to the state ESF 17 ECO, LeiAnna Tucker, via email at LeiAnna.Tucker@fdacs.gov . The request will be reviewed by the ESF 17 ECO, FDACS Bureau Chief of Animal Disease Control, and the FDACS State Veterinarian. The requestor will be contacted directly of its approval status.

Note: FDACS ESF 17 will ensure the resource request process is coordinated appropriately for declared and non-declared emergency events (Local > County EOC > State), and that the county has exhausted all available local resources prior to requesting state emergency response equipment.

MARE Unit

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, and cleaning equipment.

Mini-MARE Unit

Mini-MARE Unit: A Mini-MARE Unit is a smaller, more mobile enclosed trailer, with animal crates of various sizes and some of the miscellaneous items in the full MARE Unit.

Livestock Panels

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

ATR Unit

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.
