With all these devastaing earthquakes happening lately and my family living in Los Angeles, an earthquake prone city, I've been wondering if anyone has ideas to keep our "children" safe.

Anyone else live in a quake prone area?? Do you secure your cages to the wall? Any other safety tips/ideas for people who have gone through disasters with parrots?

Thanks!!

Luckily I don't live in an area of extreme earthquakes so can't give you specific tips but I did find this site.

I don't live in an eartquake area. We get tornados here. I have travel type cages in my basement on the west wall. When we get a warning, I move my guys into them.

I keep a "pet taxi" under each of my 4 bird cages in case we have to evacuate for any reason, fire, flood, tornado, earthquake, etc...

This is always in the back of my mind. I look for ways to protect myself, home, and pets in the event of a disaster, natural or man-made.

All the animals have crates and leashes. The dogs are chipped. I want to chip everyone else.

I keep plenty of food and water on hand at all times. I have back-up power ready. I can evac all animals and myself in about 15 minutes or less.

Along with chipping, I also have pictures of each animal with me in the picture to prove ownership.

It was either last spring or the year before, a really bad storm came thru Memphis. It produced a tornado that hit about 10 miles from my home. I moved everyone to safety and had no problems. All the animals knew something was wrong and were very quiet and did great. Now, moving them back to there room was a whole different deal. They wanted to play and stay in their "mini shelters".

With a plan, you have no surprises. You know what to do, where to go, and how to ca1rry it out. You are calm and they will be calm too.

I keep two pet taxis, gloves, and nets to the right of my RB2s cages. I have my securtiy system Brinks notified that I have animals and where they are. I also have special alarms for fire, heat, and carbon monoxide that are activated whether the rest of the system is turned on or not.
