Do you have a disaster plan for your pets?

4/30/2022 (Permalink)

The number one priority in any disaster is your safety. However, once you are secure, how will your pet be safe as well? Having a pet-preparedness plan along with a human-preparedness plan can be life-saving to you and your pet.

Store Important Items

To care for your pets during a disaster, it is good to store pet food, water, and animal first aid items in your home. Having a stash that can easily be retrieved is pertinent to keeping your pets safe during a crisis. 

Evacuation Plan

When you establish a plan for evacuation, include your pets so you know to take them with you. While not always possible, keeping your pets with you increases their chances of survival. 

ID Your Pets

It is important for your pets to have an ID on them at any given moment, but especially during a disaster. They can easily be traced if they are properly identified which can make finding them much easier. If an animal is lost, any found pet alerts will contain better information on your animal. Saying that, it is good practice to also check for found pet alerts, as most people in a community would help you find your pet. 

Keep Up With Vaccinations

Having your pets’ vaccinations up to date reduces the risk of them getting sick while a disaster occurs. 

Your safety is important, but so is your pets’. These practices will ensure that your pets stay happy and healthy during any ordeal.

What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Monroe, Randolph and Washington Counties for mold remediation services.

What Not to Do:

  • Don’t touch or disturb the mold.
