Pet Fire Safety Day
Approximately 500,000 pets are affected by fires every year, according to the United States Fire Administration. Promote the safety of the people and animals in your home in the event of a fire emergency by planning ahead. From preventative caution to making an evacuation plan that includes pet safety, here are three pet preparation steps you can take today.
It's important to keep animals away from open flames such as candles. Make sure your candles are in a secure location that cannot be knocked over.
In the event of a fire, if your pets are not able to make it out of the house with you, let the responding firefighters know that. They will do everything they can to recover your animals from the home.
Make sure you have all your pets records in a secure place so they can be accessed in the event of a fire.
Pets are like family. Make sure they are apart of your fire evacuation plan.
