The Emergency Preparedness
Tip o'da Week

Emergency Preparedness for Ferrets
By Carla Almaraz

About this T.O.W. submission:

Thanks to Carla Almaraz for the tip!

Carla says, "Writing this article gave me the opportunity to combine my two passions--my thirteen precious ferrets and emergency preparedness.  I became interested in preparedness as a method of coping with my extreme fear of living in Earthquake Country (Southern California).  In 1993, I completed a research paper for my undergraduate degree on 'Earthquake Preparedness in the Inland Empire.'  Only 15% of the people interviewed had made adequate preparations!  I now live in Portland where I'm the secretary for the Oregon Ferret Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to public education and awareness concerning the domestic ferret.  Emergency preparedness is still a major priority in my life and allows me and my animals to be ready to cope with the unexpected.  Although this article is tailored for ferrets, the concepts could be applied to any companion animal."


A disaster can strike at any time; while you are sleeping, driving your car to work, at home, or at work.  Disasters can be snowstorms that keep you housebound for several days, an earthquake that blocks freeways and destroys homes, a hurricane, or a power outage during a heat wave or in the winter.  Have you made preparations for your ferrets in the event that you cannot tend to them for several days or must evacuate?  This "Tip O'da Week" will help you prepare an evacuation kit that will sustain your ferrets for at least three days.  Trying to put together an evacuation kit during a disaster will be a disaster in itself and may cost the lives of your precious loved ones.  Start preparing today!
