Volunteer animals needed for North Bend emergency training

The city of North Bend will be host to the American Humane Association’s Basic Animal Emergency Services Training for Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) personnel on Saturday and Sunday, March 17 and 18, at Meadowbrook Farm.

CERT personnel are to be trained to render assistance to animals that may be displaced or separated from their owners during a natural disaster or emergency event.

As part of the training, the city needs to have available one gentle horse, and two friendly mid- to large-size dogs. The horse will be needed for about one hour on the afternoon of Saturday, March 17. The dogs will be needed Saturday afternoon, and all day Sunday.

If you would be willing to provide a horse and/or dogs for this important emergency training event, contact Public Works Director Ron Garrow at or by phone at (425) 888-7650.
