Emergency Preparedness Tip of the Week: Pets


Tip: If you own pets, ensure an adequate food supply for them. Also, consider having them “chipped.” Microchips are tiny transponders, about the size of a grain of rice, that can be implanted in your pet’s skin by veterinarians and animal shelters. Microchips are a good option for pet identification. The Emergency Preparedness Committee (EPC) has a chip reader to identify your pet in an emergency.
