Natural disasters can strike at any time. Living in the pacific northwest, there is the constant threat of a long-overdue earthquake. I have taken the threat seriously and have been preparing my bug out bags for the past year.
I have a large hiking bag in my house ready for evacuating on foot. I have a day supply pack in my car and a Rubbermaid tub full of supplies for hunkering down at home. This is on top of a month’s supply of food and water for my family and me.
With all the wildfires burning in Oregon, some even a little too close to home, I’ve taken another look at my emergency kits. I realized I have not fully prepared my pets for evacuations.
