About this event

ABOUT OUR CHARITY

We are New Zealand's only dedicated animal disaster management charity.

We act to make sure no animal is left behind in times of emergency or disaster.

Formed in 2018, we hope to provide a national structure for volunteers who want to help animals impacted by a disaster. We do this by assisting the evacuation of animals during emergencies and providing initial emergency sheltering until traditional animal welfare charities can accommodate them. With no government funding, we need your help to do the right thing for the animals. See more at www.animalevac.nz

Welcome to the 26th Animal Evac New Zealand Foundation Course being held in Dunedin on 21/22 Aug 2021.

The course starts sharp at 9 am, so we welcome you to arrive a touch earlier, so we can start on time. If you have any issues please call or text Mark on 021408824.

Prior to the course, we recommend you review our Code of Conduct http://www.animalevac.nz/about-us/code-of-conduct/and if you are not familiar with CIMS, review the CIMS online tutorial (noting there have been minor changes since version 2 was introduced) https://connect.massey.ac.nz/cims

We also recommend that you look at the learning resources available at https://animaldisastermanagement.blog/aem101/(before and after the course) and should you undertake any of the free online courses available please make sure you save your certificate.

We will have a limited stock of T-shirts available for purchase on the day at $30 (cash or cheque or mobile app payment), please email info@animalevac.nz with your size to pre-order if possible.

Please wear comfortable clothing, reading glasses if needed, pen and paper. Please bring your Laptop or Tablet if you have one for the second day as these are needed for the online phase. You may want to have a water bottle too. During the lunch break, you are welcome to go to the mall or other local food outlets. Tea and coffee will be provided on-site. The course is scheduled to finish by 5 pm each day.

Am I automatically a responder for Animal Evac after the course?

In most cases, you will be flagged as meeting our minimum requirements and added to our database. However, you may be required to undertake additional training depending on your role. In some cases, you may already hold the required qualifications, and once we have confirmation of those we can update your status. Many of our roles also require you to pass a criminal background check. After the course, you will receive an email invitation from our team management system (D4H Team Manager) so you can update your details, etc.

Are there food stores or cafes close by?

Yes, we have ensured shops to purchase food are within walking distance. However, if you have special dietary requirements, you are welcome to bring your own lunch too.

This is a classroom-based course and does not have any live animal handling. Please do not bring your pets.

A big thanks to the (TBC)for allowing us to use their training room too.

We look forward to seeing you all at the course! We still have a few more spaces available if you know of anyone else interested too.

Kind regards
