i wonder why BC Transit could not dispatch buses to help people and their pets
That's happening now as we speak. Buses are being provided for human evacuees and various rescue organizations (horse, SPCA etc) are involved for the animals. Vernon is pretty full of refugees from the fires right now.i wonder why BC Transit could not dispatch buses to help people and their pets
That is good to know. There is much we need to do as individuals, too. I think this warrants a separate thread.Fortunately, US cities are required to have an evacuation plan for animals and some are actually working on it. I volunteer with an animal diaster rescue group (we took care of over 1,000 animals in Victorville during the Big Bear/San Bernardino fires) and lots of cities have contacted us to help them set up an evacuation plan or at least have a rescue group available to help if needed.
