Whether it’s dogs, cats, fish, ferrets or any other animal that you love and live with, you should have a plan that would allow you to pack up and leave quickly in case of an emergency. As a member of the family, your pet(s) will be included in your evacuation plan.
You should have a way to transport your animals safely to your vehicle and once inside, to secure them within the car.
In the event you have to rely on traveling on foot, or need to bring other necessities a light-weight wheeled cart is recommended as part of your evacuation kit. For small pets that need to be carried, a carrier with a shoulder strap or pet pack is essential.
A portable shelter can be used to secure your pet safely and may also have a calming effect on your pet in a stressful situation, especially if your pet has used the shelter in your home prior to the emergency.

- Food in airtight
