Don't Forget Your Pets When it Comes to Home Safety

Dog and Cat Don't Forget Your Furry Friends in an Emergency

Home Pet Safety

Did you know that over 1,000 house fires each year are caused by pets? Our furry friends are curious and don't understand the consequences of fire, but there are measures you can take to keep your family, and your pet, safe.

Keep a Watchful Eye Around Flames

Our pets don't understand that fire will burn them, damage our homes or otherwise cause destruction if not handled properly. Ensure that pets are kept away from grills, campfires and other open flames. 

Indoor Fire Sources

Never leave lit candles where a pet could knock them over or burn themselves. This is especially true if you're not in the room. Keep cords neatly bundled, ensure all coating is intact and place them in areas where pets can't access them to play with or chew on them. ALWAYS put out any fire source before you leave. 

Include Pets in your Emergency Plans

Some areas now provide window clings (that can be picked up at your local fire department), stating that there are pets in the home. Having one of these can help ensure firefighters find your companion if you're not there to alert them that they're inside. 

Keep leashes and cages near entry points for quick access by you or the fire department.
