Course Description:

Animal Emergency Preparedness (1025307) activated on 12/21/2010, reviewed 7/29/2015

As Hurricane Katrina, the Greensburg, Kansas tornado and other events have shown, disasters do not distinguish between animals and humans. The good news: It is possible to prepare for your animals as well as for yourself. This online course provides information on how to keep service animals and pets safe in both natural and manmade disasters. The course was created by the Research and Training Center on Independent Living at the University of Kansas and Carol Ferguson Ed.D, RN, course consultant.

The hour-long course is appropriate for a wide audience, from professionals to pet owners, including:

-Emergency responders
-People with disabilities who use service animals or have pets
-Professionals who provide services to people with disabilities, such as staff from centers for independent living and personal care attendants
-Staff and volunteers of animal shelters
-People who have pets or know others who have pets

“Animal Emergency Preparedness” explains the importance of disaster preparedness for service animals and pets and identifies the steps needed for disaster preparedness for service animals, dogs, cats and other small pets. It also describes what to expect after a disaster to avoid new dangers to service animals or pets and explain options for responsible volunteering when animal rescue or sheltering is needed after a disaster.  

Continuing education units are not offered, but people who take the course will have access to the objectives and an official certificate with the amount of hour/s it took to complete the course. They can then self-submit to their professional entity for CEUs.
