Are Your Pets Ready for an Emergency?
As Hurricane Harvey unfolds in Texas, it is a good reminder to ensure disaster preparedness plans are in place for your family and your animals. The best way to protect your pets is to ensure they are prepared for these situations.

Pets should be included in your evacuation plans and you should practice and routinely update those plans. Some things to consider when planning are:
  • Register with, the mass notification system designed to keep OC residents informed of emergencies.
  • Develop an evacuation plan that includes at least two different evacuation routes. Locate evacuation sites outside of your immediate area.
  • To limit a pet’s stress, make sure your pets are trained to enter a crate or cage comfortably.
  • Maintain a go bag for each pet that includes vaccination and other important medical records, medications, food, collar and leash, photos of your family with your pets for identification purposes, etc.
  • When asked to evacuate, please do so as soon as possible and be sure take your pets with you to avoid heavy traffic, road closures or rapidly changing situations for pets taking place in your area.
