In this very beneficial workshop, first responders train for contact with dangerous reptiles, including capture, containment and transport, by working directly with animals.
Wildlife expert Tom Hudak presents workshops for law enforcement, emergency response and animal control personnel dealing with the identification and safe handling practices of rattlesnakes, vipers, cobras, alligators, pythons and other potentially dangerous reptiles.
Participants get to view and interact with 40 species of live animals, including a diamondback rattlesnake, gaboon viper, puff adder, monocle cobra, monitor lizards, alligators, a 14-foot python, and also some potentially dangerous small exotic invertebrates (spiders and scorpions) under the close supervision of Tom.
Through hands-on training, participants will learn to identify these potential threats and will be able to deal with them with minimal risk to themselves or the animal. The goal is to keep officers and civilians safe while minimizing public relations problems. Because of the increasing popularity of exotic pets, these animals may be encountered not only during animal confiscation but also during emergency or law enforcement situations.
