Livestock and Poultry Survey

Jump start your disaster preparedness plan!

In an effort to coordinate safe and efficient animal evacuation in the face of a community emergency or disaster, UCCE Sonoma County is asking poultry and livestock producers to complete a survey of your needs. Your input will inform UCCE and the County of Sonoma departments, local agencies, and private organizations as they develop evacuation plans for rapid deployment of services.

Better planning allows for more efficient reaction during vital moments of disasters and will lead to improved emergency response and safer communities. The survey questions will assist poultry and livestock owners in identifying their needs while preparing their operation for a disaster. Examples of questions include “Do you know how to contact neighbors?” and “Do you have large-scale equipment to help prepare fire breaks?” It also asks producers to list their structures in order of importance in case firefighters need to prioritize their efforts. The survey takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
