Use our checklist to plan for when disasters strike
Plan ahead to protect your pet during an emergency
As natural disasters become more powerful and more frequent, Canadians need to be prepared. Whether it is a flood, fire or earthquake, if you complete this checklist beforehand, you can save your pets life.
Disasters can occur at any time and may disrupt basic services such as water, electricity, phone and gas. Without an emergency plan, you could make panicked decisions that threaten the safety of your pet, yourself and your family.
By making an emergency plan for your family pet, you will be prepared to evacuate fast or stay put with enough supplies during an emergency.
