  4. Is best communicated to the public by each department involved in the disaster response

The Correct Answer:

A. During a disaster, information about a temporary animal shelter should be conveyed to the public by the Public Information Officer to ensure a coordinated and consistent message.

Explanation:

A disaster situation affects not only humans but also equally affects animals as well. The problem becomes out of control because humans can protect themselves, but it is not the same in the case of animals. According to the statistics, most pet owners and animal industries do not make rescue plans for their pets and leave them behind during a disaster.

The federal emergency management agency is one of the government agencies that continuously inform the people and educate them on how to protect their animals whenever needed. Agency highly focuses on providing information related to available resources, which can enhance the rescue mission.

Pet owners or animal industry owners can save time and money by deciding to protect their animals. The centers for humans are ubiquitous, which not only provide food and water to humans but also provide them with a Public Transportation system and a health check. The same thing happens in the case of animals as well.

The federal emergency management agency has plenty of plans for where they rescue the animals and feed them properly during a disaster situation. One such Federal emergency service is a temporary animal shelter.

These animal shelters not only help provide water and food to these animals but also help enforce the law, Refugee evacuation, medical evaluation, mobile search,  and provide communication facilities for pet owners.  They regularly update the pet owners regarding the health of their pets and hand them over when the situation comes under control.

The pet owners and the owner of animal industries are solely responsible for communicating with federal agencies whenever they get any advanced information on possible future disasters.

Federal Agencies are fully accountable for the pet after the owners have handed it over to them during a disaster. Further information related to the temporary animal shelter should be conveyed to the public by the Public Information Officer to ensure that a coordinated and consistent message is reached to the communities.

It is impossible to target a large population by simply posting a poster on the front door of the City Hall or announcing it to all local veterinarians so they can inform their patients and communicate with every department involved in disaster response. These three options will not effectively help pet owners to take advantage of temporary animal shelters.
