Large Animal Rescue in Norway
The video below was posted on the Nedre Romerike brann- og redningsvesen IKS Facebook page and I ran across it after the Heavy Rescue Germany page shared it. Great video, even a griphoist got in on the action!
Translated from the Facebook post:
This morning at 7.30-time, the message came from the 110-Dispatch: two calves had stepped through the fjøsgulvet and stood in møkkakjelleren on a farm on the ravine.
The Ravine is located in ullensaker municipality and in the area of the upper district fire and rescue. Vaktlaget from the station on jessheim moved out, and our security in nittedal was asked to assist when they have equipment and matters on dyreredning. Nrbr also sent up a unit from lørenskog with usar equipment. Usar stands for urban search and rescue.
Together got crews from the upper district fire and rescue and lower district fire-and redningsvesen up the calves undamaged and for sure reason.

Large Animal Rescue
Large Animal Rescue can happen anywhere. Police horses are commonly used all over the United States for many different events.
Large Animal Rescue
Many departments may believe that their response areas are not rural so a Large Animal Rescue (LAR) call may never happen. However, large animals are transported throughout the country in urban, suburban, and rural areas. This doesn’t mean that every department needs to run out purchase all the LAR equipment and send all their personnel tech training. It means you should have an awareness level of large animals, the trailers they are transported in, and the equipment used in LAR.
