National Pet Fire Safety Day: What's Your Plan?

According to the National Fire Protection Association, nearly 1,000 house fires each year are accidentally started by pets.
Make sure you know how you can keep your pets safe from fire dangers.

Here for some fire safety tips for you and your pet!

  • Extinguish Open Flames
    Curious pets naturally want to investigate cooking appliances, fireplace fires and candles. Ensure your pets are not left unattended around open flames.
  • Pet Proof Your Home
    Check for potential fire hazards – Stove knobs, loose electrical wires, flammable liquids, etc..
  • Keep Pets Near Entrances
    When leaving pets home alone, keep them in room near doors or windows where firefighters can easily see them. Affix a “Pet Alert” static cling to a front window.
  • Use Monitored Smoke Detectors
    Pet can’t escape danger by themselves – these detectors alert a monitoring center to send help ASAP.
  • Have An Escape Plan
    Practice escape routes and have a safe place to take your pet after evacuation. Always keep collars, leashes and carriers in convenient location.
