Preparing for Evacuation - Stay Prepared
Plan for Animal Evacuation
Before any type of emergency occurs, have a plan in place for evacuation of your animals. Research possible locations for you and your pets to go and keep an updated list of friends who live outside of the area that might be able to care for your animals.
Build a Go Bag!
A Go Bag contains items that should sustain you for 72 hours in the event of emergency or evacuation. Every member of your family should have their own Go Bag. Store your Go Bag where you feel it is most accessible if you have to leave your home or work with very short notice. Learn which items to include in your Go Bag and how to maintain your bag.
Make a Family Communication Plan Tonight
Being prepared for an emergency is always a good idea. Today, it is especially important. Your family may not be together if an the Evacuation Warning is upgraded to an Immediate Evacuation Order, so it is important to think develop a Family Community Plan. Use these resources from FEMA.
