Remember, your pets will be affected by a disaster, too. Follow these steps to make sure they are looked after:

  • Include your pets in your disaster planningStan Only -100x 114
  • Attach a permanent disc to your pet's collar that clearly states your phone number, name and address, if there is room
  • If possible, take your pet's vaccination records with you if you have to evacuate. This will help your pet be rehoused if necessary
  • Include a carry box, towel or blanket in your Emergency Survival Kit. Put your name and phone number on the box
  • Keep an emergency supply of pet food
  • Check with your local council about their arrangements for assisting with domestic animal issues
