By law, Emergency Management is responsible for mobilizing resources, implementing disaster plans and declaring a disaster when a disaster strikes. When a disaster is declared, Emergency Management can then request assistance from non-government organizations (NGO’s), neighboring municipalities and counties, their State and/or FEMA.
This is why AKC Pet Disaster Relief donations are so important to local Emergency Management Teams. These mobile equipment trailers help communities be prepared to help people with their pets when disaster strikes.
