What We Do 

DAS VALLEY CENTER DISASTER ANIMAL RESPONSE TEAM members, including animal care professionals, participate in a monthly DAS VC DART training program approved by the Department of Animal Services.  This prepares us to provide for the safety and care of livestock and pets in the event of an emergency in Valley Center or nearby north San Diego county communities.  Volunteers complete required courses offered through FEMA.  Additional training opportunities may be provided by other local agencies or organizations.  As part of Valley Center's Emergency Response Plan, DAS VC DART will only activate at the direction of the County of San Diego Department of Animal Services. 

How We Will Do It 

DAS VC DART provides training for our members so that they qualify to be deployed.  Our trained "hands-on" volunteers will be locally available to assist emergency response officials with the evacuation and care of our domestic livestock and pets when disaster strikes.

Education and Information

DAS VC DART has a very active public awareness and emergency preparedness education program.  Look for our information booth at public events.  We also offer a presentation for your club or organization.
