United Way of Northern California teamed up with Yreka Rescue Ranch to host a series of disaster readiness trainings, with a focus on pet and farm animal safety.
The training guideline comes from the Listos California Disaster Ready Guide, which was established last year by the California governor and state legislators.
“It’s time for us to educate ourselves on what we need to do to prepare for fires, floods, or earthquakes and now, public health emergencies,” said Jacqueline Nushi with United Way of Northern California.
