Pet disaster kits should include: medications, first aid kits, sturdy leashes and collars, carriers to transport pets safely, current photos with owner or family members, food, potable water, litter/pan, muzzle, can opener, and toys.
Make a check list of necessary pre hurricane preparations and review with your family. Review it again when there is a storm in the Gulf of Mexico. Discuss evacuation plans with your family. Check Radio 740 and local television media for updates on zones being evacuated. Make sure your home insurance policy is current and remember that standard policies may not cover flooding and wind damage.
