As part of the TIPS Disaster Initiative, a folder with a Disaster Preparedness Checklist for families and pet owners will be distributed at the Dog Vaccination Clinic. The folder will include a Flash Drive for families and pet owners to use to save the important documents described on the checklist in the event of a disaster. the Flash Drive has been generously donated by TIPS Sponsor UnitedLex.
It is too late to prepare for a disaster after it strikes, you need to be prepared ahead of time. Like the earthquake kits in California, TIPS hopes the disaster preparedness checklists and Flash Drive will be helpful to the families and pet owners of the Ninth Ward. We encourage those TIPS members attending the ABA's Mid-year Meeting in New Orleans to signup as a volunteer and visit the Ninth Ward on Saturday, February 4th. Transportation will be provided. As a volunteer you have a choice of two hour time slots starting at 11:00 a.m. Sign up at the TIPS registration desk at the Mid-year Meeting. You are also encouraged to attend the CLE programs on Friday, February 3rd.
