Boulder County Fire

Boulder County Fire

In light of the recent fire, I’d like to remind you to prepare an emergency evacuation plan for your pets and/or livestock.  In times like this moving quickly is key. I have submitted articles in the past about the importance of having an emergency preparedness plan for your pets.

Remember to have water, food, and any necessary medications handy and ready to go.  Also, keep a airline rated crated nearby as this can assist in keeping your pet safe in an emergency.  Keep your pets records and identification in a water proof container secured to his crate and have a copy for yourself.

Evacuation centers have been set up at the North Boulder Recreation Center, the Nederland Community Center and New Vista High School in Boulder. The Boulder County Fairgrounds is set up to accept large animals that were evacuated and the Longmont Humane Society is also taking in some animals. Courtesy of KUNC
