Members of the Shawnee Fire Department Technical Rescue Team recently joined with members of Bayer HealthCare Animal Health for a series of rescue training drills.

On September 27, firefighters and Bayer security and safety personnel constructed a series of exercises to simulate real life circumstances that personnel at the U.S. Animal Health headquarters may encounter that could potentially result in a rescue situation.

“Bayer takes employee and community safety very seriously. We recognize the importance of collaborating with local emergency personnel to ensure we are prepared for potential rescue situations and are proud to partner with the Shawnee Fire Department,” said Staci Gouveia, director of U.S. communications, Bayer HealthCare Animal Health. “Just as individuals and families should be prepared to handle a potential emergency, companies must have a plan of action, too.”

Low-angle rescue and confined space entries are a couple of scenarios that members participated in as a joint training exercise designed to enhance working operations and relationships. The training coincided with fire department familiarization tours of the Bayer facility in the month of September.
