Family pets are important members of a household.

Just as you prepare your family for a disaster, the same can be done for your pet. Some simple steps can be taken, like creating a plan, assembling an emergency kit for your   pet, and getting informed, that will help if disaster were to strike. 

Be prepared to adapt this information to your personal circumstances and make every effort to follow instructions received from authorities on the scene. With these simple preparations, you can be ready for the unexpected. Those who take the time to prepare themselves and their pets will likely encounter less difficulty, stress, and worry.
