General Preparedness

Update Animal Preparedness & Response

Please update FEMA IS-10 Animals in Disaster, Module A: Awareness and Preparedness as well as FEMA IS-11 Animals in Disaster, Module B: Community Planning. So much has been learned since Hurricane Katrina (we hope). Animal Preparedness and response has shifted so much, the curriculum needs an update since 1998!

Citizen-corp even added its animal edition to the CERT program.

Pet owners don't want to be considered a burden yet a majority of them have NO idea what's expected of them, what the tribal, local, state and federal government can do and how its done.

For example outline the roles of outside groups like HSUS, American Humane, co-location shelters, what to expect from Red Cross as it relates to pet owner intake, etc
