Video: Pet Fire Safety Preparedness

October is one of the most dangerous months for wildfires here in California and other parts of the Western U.S.

This is because we get very little (if any) rain in the summer months, which makes the vegetation very dry.  This is combined with strong dry winds (called the Santa Anas) that blow in from the deserts to the east.

It’s important for pet owners in California—and everywhere—to be prepared for wildfires and other natural disasters like tornadoes and hurricanes.

Do you have your emergency plans in place to safely evacuate with your pets?  Here’s a video from PETA that outlines the essentials of a pet fire safety plan.  You can also find more info on the FEMA website HERE.
