Track: Disaster and Emergency Management
Authors: Sandi Mitchell, Amanda Weaver
With recent fires and floods in CO, the importance of domestic animal evacuation was recognized in emergency response efforts.

issue of animal evacuation. By incorporating ESRI tools to current evacuation efforts they hope to improve the process of moving larger animals to safety.
