PET EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS PLAN

Updated: Sep 12, 2022

Currently, North and Central Texas is under a Red Flag Warning. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to have a wildfire emergency/disaster plan for you + your pets + fosters BEFORE you are immediately at risk. Please take a moment to read through the information from Red Cross and make a plan with family.

QUICK FAQ

What is a Red Flag Warning? A Red Flag Warning means that extreme fire weather conditions are either occurring now, or will shortly. A combination of strong winds, low relative humidity, and dry vegetation can contribute to extreme fire behavior. Avoid all outside burning and welding today. Do not toss lit cigarette butts outside. Report wild fires to the nearest fire department or law enforcement office. What are the impacts of a Red Flag Warning? Wildfires will have the potential to grow and spread rapidly. Any activities that could start a wildfire should be avoided. Burning of any kind is strongly discouraged and may be unlawful in some counties. Where can I find resources for making an emergency plan for my pets and fosters?
