|Emergency & Disaster Preparedness|
Disasters can occur at any time and at any place. The definition of a disaster is when an event occurs and the community resources become overwhelmed causing the inability to function normally. It is impossible to be 100% ready for a disaster. However, there are many way you can be prepared. As a member of the community you are in a position where you may find yourself involved in helping animals during a disaster. It is important that every veterinary clinic have a disaster plan in place because your clients and the public will come to you looking for help during a disaster.
