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.
