Fire Safety for Horse Yards
Here at DVEVC we have teamed up with the Suffolk Fire & Rescue Services to produce a workshop on Fire Safety for Horse Yards. If you would like us to come to your riding club and inform your members, or your horse is at livery where you think everyone would benefit from our workshop then please get in touch with us.
Our first workshop was a great success with an invited group of 21 people attending and we even had Fire Plans being made on the evening. The workshop covered interesting and valuable topics on what information the emergency services need when you ring them, what your fire plan needs to include, the types of signage needed, and how to make a map of your premises and what to include on it. The Suffolk Fire & Rescue Services also demonstrated their horse rescue equipment they use and told us what they need to know in the event of a trapped horse.
All very useful information and the feedback was very positive.
