The Pennyrile Area Citizen’s Corps Council has created its first disaster animal response team.
According to Regional Operations Manager Frank Brown, FEMA recently mandated additional training to create the pet-friendly program, which will fall under the community emergency response team program.

For more information about how area citizens can protect their pets when a disaster strikes, Brown says citizens can contact him directly at 270-885-1530.
