Pet Preparedness

Why is Including Pets in Your Disaster Preparedness Important?

  • Pets are part of your family and it is up to you to help keep them safe during disasters in emergencies! Pets cannot take the necessary steps to prepare themselves so it is important that you take your pet(s) into account when creating an emergency plan for yourself and your family.
  • If you don't take steps to help prepare your pet for an emergency situation, it will likely take longer to respond in such situations, therefore increasing the risk to yourself and your family as well.
  • There are plenty of resources out there to help you take the necessary steps to help prepare your pet!
