An Animal-Inclusive Disaster Plan Is Paws-itively Win-Win for You & Residents

Most American households, including renters, have at least one pet. Yet animals are frequently excluded from residential disaster-planning efforts. That’s a mistake.

A pet-centric disaster plan doesn’t have to be costly and has numerous benefits. By implementing one, you’ll not only boost resident satisfaction and retention—you’ll also improve community safety and resiliency in the face of an emergency.

In this training webinar, housing industry expert Jo Becker will arm you with critter-specific provisions for disaster planning, a list of free resources to rely on in drafting your plan, and tips for mounting a successful outreach campaign that will empower residents to plan ahead for handling their animals during an emergency.

It’s time to equip your residents—including the furry kind—to prepare for the unpredictable.

Session Highlights

This session will address:

  • Pet-specific considerations for specific disaster types (e.g., winter storms and fire)
  • How to target animal-safety messages to residents
  • Where to find relevant (and free!) community services & information to share with residents
  • How to communicate low- and no-cost disaster-planning steps to residents
  • How to design an outreach campaign to teach preparedness & disaster resilience

Who Should Attend

This webinar will benefit housing industry professionals, including leasing and on-site property managers, residential services coordinators in affordable housing communities, community concierges in high-end housing communities, landlords and owners/agents, maintenance personnel, and homeowners associations and community managers.
