Earthquakes, Tornadoes, and Flooding…oh My!
What a day! It seems like wherever you might be in Japan you’ve probably been hit by SOMETHING today. Everybody stay safe!
Please, if at all possible, take your pets with you if you ever need to evacuate. You are their only protection and if it’s not safe for you…it’s not safe for them.
What to keep in a pet “go bag” for quick evacuation:
food for at least a week in a sealable bag/container
any medicines/basic first aid kit
toys and treats(for stress relief)
extra collar/leash (dogs)
phone numbers/e-mail for your vet and animal rescue groups in your area (many if not most are very happy to help in an emergency)
Keep your pet “go bag” close to your main exit in an easily accessible place (ours is in the shoe cabinet) and update perishables regularly. It can make a huge difference when an emergency comes!!
