Emergency Preparedness

When an emergency occurs, equine and equine owners are affected – horse owners and custodians are often left on their own to manage the horses in their care. Experience has shown that the lack of emergency structure creates human and animal safety issues and has a negative impact on the response of first responders and municipal emergency coordinators to the actual emergency.

In March of 2017, the AEF received funding for the Equine Industry Emergency Preparedness Program. The outcome was an Equine Industry Emergency Preparedness Plan that includes guidelines and templates to assist Municipality governing bodies and personnel to incorporate equine into existing emergency management plans. In an emergency, your municipality or community will have the resources to assist equine owners.

Action Plan and Additional information:


In a commitment to improving Canada’s approach to emergency management in agriculture, federal, provincial and territorial (FPT) governments have developed an Emergency Management Framework for Agriculture in Canada (the Framework). The Framework sets out to improve Canada’s ability to address risks and emergencies along the continuum from prevention to recovery, therefore strengthening the resilience, sustainability, and competitiveness of the agriculture sector.
