Emergency preparedness: Your Pets

From Emory Kidd, Director
Metcalfe County Emergency Management

We've mentioned pets several times already since, after all, they are members of the family.

Do you have carriers, extra food and supplies and information on their records and such?

If they will tolerate a collar, they should be wearing one, consider one that has your name and information woven into it, rather than a tag that can be easily lost.

Have good close-up photos of them as well, should you have to shelter separately from them you need a way to show which pet is yours.
