Make a Plan for Pet Safety

Make a Plan for Pet Safety

Fire Corps teams can help protect our furry friends from disasters and other emergencies by educating pet owners about how to include their pets in their preparedness efforts. Pets rely on their owners for their safety and well-being; it is important to plan ahead for potential disaster situations. The American Red Cross has a Pets and Disaster Safety Checklist to help pet-owners take preparations before disaster strikes and help them to understand the challenges that may arise after the disaster. Fire Corps teams can disseminate the checklist to their community.
