Do you write stories that include animals? Have you ever considered what might happen to your animals in case an emergency happened? Or have you considered having a character involved in animal response during a disaster?
Personally, I write children’s stories about Blossom the cow and her friends. I haven’t though about what might happen to them if a disaster struck their farm. Maybe I should…
The meeting this month will have a representative from KSART (Kansas State Animal Response Team) sharing information about the organization. They develop and maintain working relationships with other disaster response organizations. Emergency Management and Red Cross are two such key agency relationships. Actions by teams and team volunteers must be made with the focus of the big picture, helping the people of Kansas and their pets through natural and man made disasters.
