Sheltering with Pets

Escambia County has identified a pet-friendly shelter for household dogs and cats only. During a disaster, the shelter location will be posted on the Escambia County Storm Center. The pet-friendly shelter should be a last resort –  identify other locations to shelter pets before a disaster. 

Disability Planning

If you live near wildland areas, there is a threat of wildland fires affecting you and your home, as dry conditions at various times of the year greatly increase the potential for wildland fires.

Advance planning and knowing how to protect buildings in these areas can lessen the devastation of a wildland fire. Protecting your home from wildfire is your responsibility. To reduce the risk, you’ll need to consider the fire resistance of your home, the topography of your property and the nature of the vegetation close by.

Planning For the Farm & Animals

The Department of Homeland Security nationwide public awareness campaign If You See Something, Say Something is to raise awareness to the indicators of terrorism and terrorism-related crime and to emphasize the importance of reporting suspicious activity to local law enforcement authorities.
