Special Considerations for Specific Disasters

 

*Wildfire- Fire can spread quickly and unpredictably. If there is a wildfire in your area, immediately get ready to leave. If a voluntary evacuation notice is given, or if conditions appear to be unsafe, do not delay- leave. Also, even if you are not evacuated, soot, ash, and smoke can affect you and your animals. Air filters can make an enormous difference.
*Flood- If you live in an area at risk for flooding, keep sandbags and plastic sheeting on hand. Have several alternate evacuation routes planned.
