OROVILLE, CALIFORNIA, Oct. 1, 2020 – On most deployments of the Texas A&M 兽医紧急救援队(兽医), the worst of the emergency situation has already passed and the role of the VET is to help with recovery efforts.

那是在加州的情况作为球队抵达小山县,加利福尼亚州,最后一个周末。三级应急避难所,二为小动物和一个大型的动物,已经成立了,并赶到帮助球队缓解当地的工作人员,其中许多人已经工作12小时的天,两个多星期连胜。

但野火在正在进行的紧急情况,这种情况可以迅速改变。

回到他们的大本营在周日晚上后不久,球队收到消息说火势已经跳下,造成新的地区疏散,并需要对第四动物收容所,第二天早上要建。

“Disaster response requires sudden decision-making that is founded in preparatory planning,” said VET director Dr. Wesley Bissett. “There is an old military saying about a battle plan not lasting after the first shot. The key is that you have thought through the process. Butte County was able to rapidly identify a new shelter location because they were prepared. The Texas A&M VET was able to design and set up the shelter because we have so much experience in emergency planning.”

物流管理是不是应急的最令人激动的部分,但它们的兽医在加州起着尤为重要的作用。

“小山县的人是美好的,我们会永远的家庭考虑他们,”比塞特说。 “他们一直这么辛苦了这么久,它是值得的能进来,提供管理它们的一致性,并让他们休息。”

超过500只动物,包括狗,猫,猪,马,鸡,羊,山羊,骆驼,兔子和鸟都被照顾在四个位置。有些动物在避难所因为业主撤离,不能带他们,而另一些则通过搜索和救援队发现。

“兽医成员在庇护所提供优良的兽医医疗保健,”说比塞特。 “现实情况是,你必须要对事件造成的伤害的护理,但随后也为疾病,可以在紧急情况下的住房开发提供预防和治疗保健。”

球队希望留在加州几个星期。
