Owners of farm animals, as well as commercial livestock associations and animal care organizations, should familiarize themselves with the SLRD's Commercial Livestock Relocation Guide, as part of their emergency preparedness planning.
Producers/owners of farm animals who incur costs in moving their livestock off-site during an evacuation "alert" stage, due to hazards, such as flooding or wildfire, may be eligible for financial support.
Please review the guide, to understand whether you might qualify for Commercial Livestock Relocation Assistance.
The SLRD Emegency Operation Centre (EOC) may be able to help producers during an evacuation with activities such as loading, truck and sheltering.
The 20 page Guide provides an overview of the SLRD Disaster Framework, and includes the forms and invoicing requirements required for securing financial assistance.
