As pet owners, our furry companions are not just animals; they are valued members of the family. But when it comes to emergency planning, are we truly treating them as such? In 2021, the ASPCA found that while 83% of pet owners have been affected by a disaster, fewer than half have a disaster preparedness plan in place for their pets. This alarming statistic serves as a wake-up call to ensure pet safety is paramount in our preparedness efforts.

In this comprehensive guide, we’ll explore ways to fortify your emergency plans with pet safety at the forefront, incorporating Alert 360’s innovative solutions every step of the way.

The Need for Pet Emergency Preparedness

During the chaos of an emergency, pets can become disoriented or escape, placing them at risk. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) underscore the importance of integrating pets into emergency planning, citing the potential for severe emotional distress when family pets are unaccounted for. For many, pets are therapeutic and provide comfort during times of stress, making their safety a vital component of holistic emergency plans. Here we’ll look at strategies to better safeguard your pet in the face of unforeseen disasters.

Assembling a Comprehensive Pet Emergency Kit

Your pet emergency kit should be as diligently curated as the one for your human family members. It must include essentials such as a 72-hour supply of food, water, medications and comfort items. But what about the tech? Alert 360’s suite of home security equipment ensures you’re ready for every scenario. We’ll delve into the high-tech and low-tech items that should be stockpiled in your pet’s kit, preparing you for the unanticipated.

Identifying Pet-friendly Evacuation Options

It’s crucial to proactively identify pet-friendly evacuation routes and facilities as not all shelters may accommodate pets. While Alert 360’s systems provide weather updates and real-time information on severe weather conditions, it’s equally important to be well-informed about local pet-friendly shelters in your area. By doing so, you can ensure you’re fully prepared for unforeseen emergencies. Remember, staying informed, planning ahead and taking necessary precautions during severe weather events are key to ensuring the safety and well-being of both yourself and your beloved pets.

Enhancing Pet Safety with Home Security and Automation

Home security isn’t just about deterring burglars; it’s about creating a safe environment for living beings. For pet owners, Alert 360 offers peace of mind through their advanced security systems that extend virtual arms of protection around your pets. Smoke detectors, carbon monoxide alarms, and breach sensors are meticulously designed to keep your pets secure, with remote monitoring and control, through the Alert 360 app (available in both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store) providing an additional layer of reassurance.

Tailoring Your Home to Your Pet’s Needs

Creating a safe and nurturing environment for your pets goes beyond mere security measures; it’s about tailoring your space to their needs.
