Last year, IA was riddled with tornadoes and flooding all across the state. The floods of Central Iowa were devasting, and thousands of animals suffered with many lives being lost due to the lack of preparedness and planning. This should never have to happen again.

In an effort to be better prepared the next time disaster strikes, Kirkwood College in Cedar Rapids IA is co-sponsoring The HSUS Disaster Animal Response Team Training February 27-March 1.


The HSUS Disaster Animal Response Team (DART) is the premier basic training for animal disaster responders nationwide. This 3-day course is designed to familiarize participants with disaster situations and provide the background necessary to become an effective emergency animal relief responder. The class includes two days of mixed classroom/hands-on instruction and a long half-day of specialized exercises. After completion of DART, graduates will have a basic understanding of disaster response for animals and will be in a position to help develop their own local DART teams.
