Protect Your Pets

Did you know that Pets Start Nearly 1,000 Fires Each Year?  Here are a couple tips to Keep Pets Safe from House Fires:

Extinguish Open Flames

Pets are generally curious and will investigate cooking appliances, candles, or even a fire in your fireplace.  Ensure your pet is not left unattended around an open flame, and make sure to thoroughly extinguish any open flames before leaving your home.

Pet Proof your Home

Take a walk around your home and look for areas where pets might start fires inadvertently, such as the stove knobs, loose wires and other potential hazards.

Secure young Pets

Especially with young puppies, keep them confined away from potential fire-starting hazards when you're away from home.

Keep Pets Near Entrances

When leaving pets home alone, keep them in areas or rooms near entrances where firefighters can easily find them.

Practice Escape Routes with Pets

Keep collars and leashes at the ready in case you have to evacuate quickly with your pet or firefighters need to rescue your pet.

Since Pets Left Alone Can't Escape a Burning Home

Use monitored smoke detectors which are connected to monitoring center personnel that can call the fire department.

Affix a Pet Alert Window Cling

Write down the number of pets inside your house and attach it to a front window.  This critical information saves rescuers time when locating your pets.

Keep your information Updated

Firefighters are familiar with pet alert window clings so keep the number of pets listed on them updated.  Knowing the accurate number of pets in your house helps rescuers find all of your pets.
