Pet Emergency Kit Assemble Tips

Do you have an emergency plan in place for your pets? SERVPRO® of Mission Valley East has been responding to storm damage emergencies in Mission Valley for years, and we have seen the positive impact emergency planning has on families and their pets. Here are some pet emergency kit assembly tips from the American Red Cross:

Keep items in an accessible place and store them in sturdy containers to be carried easily.  Your kit should include:

  • Sturdy leashes, harnesses and/or carriers to transport pets safely and ensure that they can’t escape
  • Food, drinking water, bowls, cat litter/pan and a manual can opener if your pet eats canned food
  • Medications and copies of medical records stored in a waterproof container
  • A first aid kit
  • Current photos of you with your pets in case they get lost. Since many pets look alike, this will help to eliminate mistaken identity and confusion.
  • Information on feeding schedules, medical conditions, behavior problems, and the name and number of your veterinarian in case you have to foster or board your pets
  • Pet beds and toys, if easily transportable

Fire Protection Tips for Mission Valley Homeowners

SERVPRO® of Mission Valley East wants Mission Valley residents to be safe and prepared for wildfire season this year. The San Diego County website offers information on ways to protect your home from fire:

  • Existing trees and large shrubs should be pruned by cutting off any branches up to 6 feet above the ground to prevent ground fires from spreading upwards into trees.
  • For fire truck access, remove vegetation within 10 feet of each side of your driveway.
  • Remove any tree limbs within 10 feet of your chimney.
  • Work with your neighbors to clear common areas between houses.
  • Avoid planting trees under or near electrical lines.
  • Any removed trees may be chipped and left on your property if they don’t present a fire hazard. Contact your local fire agency to find out how to do this.
  • Don’t forget to legally dispose of all your cut vegetation. You may contact your local landfill to inquire about green waste recycling.
  • Stack firewood and scrap woodpiles at least 50 feet from any structure and clear away any combustible vegetation within 10 feet of the piles.
  • Check and clean your roofs and gutters on all structures several times during the spring, summer, and fall to remove debris that can easily ignite from a spark.
