SAVEM is a Response and Recovery agency. Our Mission is to Triage, Treat, Rescue and Reunite POST an event. In response to an Emergency incident, SAVEM is activated by the State Government department, Primary Industries and Regions South Australia (PIRSA) to support and work in the emergency area alongside other agencies. SAVEM was formed initially to meet the needs of companion animals and wildlife, but we are a multi-species agency, and will support and supplement PIRSA in their response to an incident involving livestock and horses. SAVEM's emergency response structure includes a State Control Centre, Regional Coordination Centres and Local Control Centres supporting in-field activities, ultimately linked back to the State Emergency Centre from which the principal emergency services operate.
