    The free training will cover several types of scenarios that could affect County residents and their pets, including natural disasters such as wildfire or flood, and other emergencies such as residential fires and power outages. 

    “We want the members of the community to know what Pima County is prepared to do in an emergency situation,” said Adam Ricci, PACC field services manager. “And we need to provide information to people so they can take the best possible care of their pets, even in a crisis.” 

    Participants will learn how to create an emergency kit for their pets and develop a contingency plan. In addition, Ricci will cover what to expect in an emergency sheltering environment, how to keep pets healthy in temporary shelters, and which vaccinations are required for sheltered pets. 

    This presentation is limited to 30 participants and reservations will be on a first come, first serve basis. To RSVP email Adam Ricci at adam.ricci@pima.gov by Monday, March 13.
