PREPAREDNESS

ARE YOU PREPARED FOR A DISASTER OR MAJOR EMERGENCY?

Mitigation is the first step in order to deal with an emergency or disaster.  By being prepared and knowing what you can do before the event, will ensure you and your pets safety. Go to the Prepare and Plan tab

A WARNING OR ALERT HAS BEEN ISSUED, WHAT DO YOU DO?

You have received a warning or alert about a disaster or emergency, you have already planned and prepared for an incident, now is the time to start the plan!   Do Not Wait, an ounce of prevention can save you, your animal and numerous resources.  Go to the Warning and Alert tab

 

A VOLUNTARY OR MANDATORY EVACUATION ORDER IS IN EFFECT:

Hopefully by this point, you are ready to leave with your family and animal(s).  If you can not get back to your home, this is where you would contact that trusted person with access to your house to get your animal(s) for you, providing there is time and it is safe to do so. Unfortunately, nature rarely allows us the time required.   Go to the Evacuations tab
