People and Their Pets: Disaster Preparedness and Response

 

The City of Alameda and Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS) invite you to attend a free disaster preparedness workshop on Saturday, April 2, 2016, from 10 a.m. to noon in the City of Alameda Council Chambers on the third floor of City Hall, 2263 Santa Clara Avenue. No reservations are necessary.

 

“People and Their Pets: Disaster Preparedness and Response" will teach you how to create a family emergency plan, and what to put in a disaster kit that will meet the needs of you and your pets. You will learn where to go, whom to call, and what you can do to keep your pets safe in the event of injury or evacuation.

 

One of the enduring lessons of Hurricane Katrina was that some people will not leave their pets in time of disaster, even if their own lives are in danger. That is why the federal government passed a new law in 2006 requiring local authorities to include pets in their disaster preparedness plans.

 

Here in the Bay Area we face the possibility of earthquakes, fires, landslides, flooding, even tsunamis. Are you – and are your pets – prepared for these calamities? The best way to ensure the safety of your entire family, furry members included, is to have an emergency plan.

 

For more information contact Jim Franz, 510-747-6883.
