Last night the GSPCA Manager greeted and gave a guided tour to 13 volunteers from the Guernsey Civil Protection.

Guernsey Civil Protection are funded, equipped and trained by the States of Guernsey under the guidance of the Emergency Planning Officer and Civil Protection Officer and are regularly used by the emergency services to support their response to various incidents and events.

The GSPCA are also included in a number of Emergency Plans for Guernsey and last night the Guernsey Civil Protection team got to see the work of the GSPCA and how we would use the facilities in the event they were required and how they are currently used, as well as the future plans.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “It was a real pleasure to show 13 of the Guernsey Civil Protection team around the GSPCA last night.”

“GSPCA team members have in the past carried out training exercises with the Guernsey Civil Protection and other authorities.”

“The tour took nearly two hours as we went around much of our Animal Shelter and there were many questions about what we do.”

“We talked about many of the challenging cases we deal with at the GSPCA from herding stray cows to helping 25 puppies seized at customs and how we manage to use our facilities and how we work with the authorities and other organisations.”

“We also talked about how we could work together and it was a lovely evening showing the wonderful Guernsey Civil Protection volunteers around who all do so much for us all here in Guernsey.”

“For those wanting to see behind the scenes we have guided tours today and tomorrow at 2pm.”
