This is an up-to-date independent study course training manual produced by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on animals in disasters, module A, awareness and preparedness (IS-10). The course overview states: "Why should emergency management officials be concerned with animals in disasters? After all, they are responsible for the safety of humans, not animals. However, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association, 58.9 percent of all U.S. households own animals.

This course does not intend to provide details on the care of animals in disasters, but to promote personal responsibility of animal owners and care providers. It also guides emergency managers in the recruitment and use of local community resources to define, develop, teach, and implement a disaster response.

It includes sections on typical hazards, how these affect animals and what can be done by responsible owners to reduce the impact of disasters. It is also intended to help animal owners, care providers and industries to better understand emergency management. Module A will heighten awareness of the special issues that emergency managers need to consider when incorporating animal-care annexes into their emergency operations plans."
