Top 10 Emergency Kit Items for Pets

disaster-infographicThe Atlantic hurricane season has begun and here in the southeast we have already experienced our first hurricane of the year, Hurricane Arthur. Now is a good time to review your emergency preparation plan with your family, and don’t forget to include a specific plan for your fur babies! Whether your geographic area experiences tropical storms, tornadoes, earthquakes, wild fires, mud slides, floods or other natural and man-made disasters, it’s a good idea to have an emergency plan and well stocked emergency kit in place before disaster strikes.

It is important that you identify pet friendly accommodations or shelters, well in advance, where you can potentially evacuate with your pets. For instance, in Hilton Head Island, SC we have to consider evacuation routes to the south, west or north depending on projected storm tracks and just moving inland does not ensure safety. When Hurricane Hugo came ashore and we were under a mandatory evacuation order, many people simply went inland 100+ miles to Columbia, SC, where we experienced massive power outages and water shortages. Be informed and be prepared!
