The following fact sheets on storms are available to help owners and carers of animals prepare for emergencies. They are available as both a single sided fact sheet or with the Plan for Animal Welfare in Emergencies (PAWE) on the reverse side for printing at home.

Storms can present dangers from flooding, wind, cold and lightning. Writing down a PAWE and including it in your storm management plan can help ensure you make the best possible decisions to protect your animals. Ensure all members of your household are familiar with your emergency plan.
