Disaster Preparedness for the Entire Family
** Chesapeake Emergency Response Updates
for Hurricane Florence **
We know you don't want to leave your pets behind, but - Are you prepared??
Do you have a plan?
Have you shared your plan with your family members?
Remember: Disaster preparedness isn't just for hurricanes & weather events.
It involves an emergency plan for every-day life.
In the case of a family emergency (sudden heart attack, illness, etc.), who will care for your pets? Another family member? A trusted neighbor? Does that neighbor or family friend have a key to your home? Know where the food is? Know where your pet's medications are kept? Have access to your pet's medical records? Know where to take them?
