A nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization
of community volunteers working with the direction of
Yavapai County Emergency Management
LASER is committed to putting safety first. We have revised our Shelter Operations to implement COVID-19 guidance that continues all our shelter services in a safe environment during these times.
o Volunteers will maintain 6’ distance as much as possible. When not possible to maintain that distance, volunteers will be strongly encouraged to wear masks. We ask that trailer drivers do the same.
o Volunteers and visitors will answer a brief Health Questionnaire before they are permitted to enter the shelter site. This does not apply to drivers bringing in animals in need of safe shelter. A copy of the Health Questionnaire is available here on this website.
o Hand sanitizer and soap/water will be available on site.
o The shelter site stall handles and common areas will be disinfected every three hours using substances approved by equine veterinarians. Stall cleaning equipment will be disinfected after each use.
We hope these steps provide a measure of comfort and reassurance that we are ready to activate during this time with your safety in mind as well as the safety of your barn animals.
Our Mission is to provide safe shelter for barn animals during evacuations in Yavapai County and
to provide information for emergency preparedness.
