What would happen to your pet in the event of an emergency?
It’s probably not something you’ve thought about before, but a new video produced by the county council’s emergency planning team is aiming to change that.
The video features Britain’s Got Talent winners Ashleigh and Pudsey talking about how to be prepared in the event of an emergency.
The key points in the video include:
Plan for your animal’s needs in an emergency.
Have a suitable carrier, is your animal used to being on a lead?
Make sure your pet is vaccinated and you have the record card to hand in case it needs to go to kennels.
Make sure you have your vet’s details and any medication to hand.
If you can’t evacuate your pet make sure you report this. If you don’t know who to tell contact the RSPCA.
