Heavy Animal Extrication Rescue Training

The ASAR Heavy Extrication division specializes in technical rope rescue applications with animals weighing over 3000 lbs. Our main focus is to provide assistance and training to facilities with large exotic animals. In addition, prototype tools and rescue equipment are routinely developed to help solve problems encountered by animal handlers and first responders to these XXL operations.

The ASAR Heavy Extrication division is available to all types of exotic, wildlife, and large animal facility for consultation, training, and response.

Heavy Extrication training provides both low angle rope rescue training with raising and lowering sling applications. This training is a basic requirement for EAST team members for both in-house response teams and ride-out disaster response and support resources. This class is 1.5 days and can focus on one or multiple species applications.
