An emergency could happen at any time, so it is critical you prepare now to ensure your animals are protected. There are a variety of disasters that may place your animals in danger, including bushfires, extreme weather and storms. The Council is here to offer you help and support to ensure your animals are prepared for an emergency. We hope the information below is helpful and encourages you to not only prepare for an evacuation now, but implement a practice run through of your emergency evacuation plan before it is needed.
In the event of a disaster, you will need to act quickly, so a strategic plan for your animals is critical.
