Illinois EMA – The Illinois Emergency Management
is reminding people to think about their pets when planning for a disaster.
This month Illinois EMA
will be working to increase awareness of pet disaster preparedness. The IEMA
director advises you to plan on at least a three day supply of food and water
for your pet. Along with medicines, pet documents, a collar with an ID tag, a
harness or leash, and a pet carrier.
Officials say it is also
a good idea to have toys or treats to help lower your pet's stress level.
