In the September issue of Dog World magazine, there is an article titled “In Case of Emergency,” by Wendy Bedwell-Wilson. She comments, “Keep your dog safe by preparing for the worst.”
Yes, I know I have written on this subject before, but I am hoping that each time, someone else will take note, prepare a survival kit, plan where to go and what to do and then practice over and over again.
Did you know that people faced with extreme danger react exactly like they have practiced? Those that haven’t planned or practiced usually just freeze because they don’t know what to do.
I would be so distressed if there was a dangerous emergency in this area and a number of families were injured or even killed because they had not planned for such an event. There is no such thing as one plan for all disasters. There are some events that require the family to take shelter in place. Other disasters, such as a chemical leak, require evacuation.
