ready-petWe recently talked about PetParedness at the White House... now the American Public Health Association (APHA) recently released an exciting new resource to help prepare your family, school, or office for emergencies. Their 2016 “Ready, Pet, Go!” Get Ready calendar features images of animals sharing important safety tips you can follow throughout the year, including:
  • If you live in an area at risk for hurricanes, know your community’s hurricane warning system. Find your evacuation routes and have supplies packed;
  • If you have to go outside during a winter storm, bundle up. Wear mittens and a hat to stay warm. Limit your time outdoors; and
  • Know where to take shelter during a disaster, whether you’re at home, work, school, or in transit.
Images used in the calendar feature winners from APHA’s recent photo contest held during National Preparedness Month. This calendar can be a great addition to your bulletin board, office space, or refrigerator. Download and print your copy today!
