I grew up on a farm. Cows, horses, ducks and chickens - The real deal. Our farm was at the foot of a mountain and the threat of fire in the summer was always on our minds.
As a Client Care Representative, I’m often one of the first points of contact for customers and it breaks my heart to hear about the wildfires affecting so many people, and as an animal lover I can’t imagine how tough it might be to find help with your pets and farm animals.
I want to help. I’ve compiled a list of resources to assist those affected - both human and critter alike.
In addition to an emergency kit, there a few things you can do to prepare your home and family in the event of a wildfire.
