With Hurricane Irma expected to make landfall in South Florida this weekend, Equo is working around the clock to safely evacuate horses from Palm Beach county and surrounding areas. If you need immediate help, please request a trip through the Equo App or call 1-844-378-6552.
Horse owners and farm managers staying to wait out the storm are advised to secure their farms and activate their hurricane emergency plans. Palm Beach Equine Clinic (PBEC) offered the following safety suggestions:
Please note that PBEC is available for all emergencies 24/7 with 25 veterinarians and three board-certified surgeons on staff during this hurricane. The clinic is also equipped with generators and will be able to offer full-service care and treatments after the storm. In case of an emergency, please call the main line at (561) 793-1599.
