Emergency preparedness for your fur family
Prepare your pets in the event of an emergency.
While it’s not something we want to think about, emergency preparedness is important to keep in mind for residents in the Okanagan.
From flooding to forest fires, it’s imperative for families to have a plan in the event of a crisis or evacuation, not only for themselves but for their furry family as well.
Here are some simple steps you can follow to prepare your pets in the event of an emergency:
1. Get an Emergency Sticker for your front door
These stickers let emergency responders know there are animals in the house to be rescued. They indicate how many pets of each species are inside, and may give the name and address of your local veterinarian or rescue organization.
