It’s not too late to remind people in your network that June is National Pet Preparedness Month. This is a great opportunity to send out a message to encourage pet owners and those with service animals to include them in their family emergency plans, prepare pet emergency kits, and think through how and where they’ll evacuate with their animals if the need arises.
If you’re a seismic or emergency management professional, you’ve likely put quite a lot of time and effort into promoting disaster preparedness this past year. Now is the time to look back, reflect on your hard work, and recognize your achievements. Congratulations on a job well done!
Now is also a great time to take a moment for yourself and your family. Before you gear up professionally for the new year and dive into your projects for 2022, be sure to pause long enough to review and update your own personal disaster preparedness plans and emergency supplies — then ring in the new year with confidence and peace of mind!
