Be Disaster Ready: Join Our Google Hangout!

September 17, 2014

If a natural disaster or emergency strikes, will you be prepared? As part of National Preparedness Month, the ASPCA wants to make sure that pet parents are ready for any situation that may arise. That’s why we’re hosting the ASPCA Disaster Preparedness Month Hangout tomorrow, Thursday, September 18 from 7:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M EST.

At this Google Hangout, we’ll help you “master the disaster” with tips and tricks to keep your four-legged family members safe. Topics will include how to prepare for a disaster with pets, what to do if a disaster strikes, how to find pet-friendly evacuation locations, and more!

Our expert panel will be moderated by Good Morning America’s Ginger Zee. Participants include:

Dick Green, Senior Director of Disaster Response, ASPCA

Deborah Press, Senior Manager of Regulatory Affairs, ASPCA

Anne McCann, National Emergency Programs Coordinator, USDA

Mark Tinsman, Mass Care Specialist, FEMA

Lysa Boston, Shelter Manager, Joplin Humane Society

Rob Curran, Hurricane Sandy Survivor, and his cat, Joy
