Animal Businesses must create emergency plans with specific circumstances in mind.  Plans must account not only for patrons and staff, but must also make provisions for multiple species of owned animals. These planning resources may assist businesses in formulating a plan.  To assist you in determining which threats and hazards can affect you, the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services has created a Threat and Hazard locator map.
