FAMILY DISASTER DOG
CALL TO ACTION
This is a test of the Family Disaster Dog Network
In the event of an extreme emergency, natural or manmade disaster, terrorist attack, fire, earthquake, tsunami, tornado, flood, landslide or economic collapse and it’s the end of the world as you know it.
In other words, when all hell breaks loose...and you are ordered to Evacuate or Decide the Safest route is to Bug-Out, slip away or run...don’t forget you trained your dog using these lessons.
As your dog wakes the household by alerting and rounding up family members, you will be waking and preparing to go.
Each family member once dressed will grab their own backpacks with emergency supplies as you and your trained family disaster dog grab family go-bags and 72 hour ready packs with extra food or supplies you want to load in the car to evacuate.
Your dog will follow your commands as your family prepares to leave instead of hiding or getting in your way, your dog will know what to do too.
Your dog will carry its own food and supplies in a dog backpack giving you more room in your own backpack and your dog has room in its pack for extra supplies for the family.
These simple steps are preplanned out ahead of time.
Critical time is saved with the help of your dog.
This scenario will be the same if you were walking out to a safe preplanned location or to the street in front of your house.
Any item you need that you have taught your dog to retrieve for you, such as flashlights or extra boots, backpacks can be fetched by your dog and dropped where you have taught your dog to take the items. For instance, in the car, truck, shelter in the back yard or out to the street away from falling objects.
Now when the warning goes off all you do is evacuate and find shelter in a safe location with your loved ones and supplies.
Be sure to write on your house that all living beings have left the building or which pets remain behind for rescuers who come to check up on you.
Your dog will know from training and family evacuation drills what to do and so will your family which will reduce stress, fear and trauma.
This alone can save your life because more people get injured from panic then anything else during a mob situation or huge evacuation.
Set up camp with your family, bring out the pre-packed snacks from your rescue pack and celebrate!
You and your family dog did it!
Your family is safe; your dog is with you.
Wait for officials to find you or fix the disaster.
Do not leave your safe location unless you have a very good reason.
The next post will outline what to do when a loved one is lost and how to use your dog to find them. Be safe, have fun preparing with your dogs.
