Pet Fire Safety, Our top 10 tips!

In Honor of National Pet Fire Safety Day, We've put together our top 10 fire safety tips you can practice to reduce the risk of a fire, respond effectively in an emergency, and keep your pets out of harm’s way.

 

1- Use fire alert window decals. 

These easy-to-apply window stickers let first responders know how many pets are in the home and where they may be located. This is a HUGE help to fire personnel when trying to locate and rescue a frightened or unconscious pet. 

  

2- Secure stove knobs. 

Some curious pets are particularly adept when it comes to turning knobs. If your pets can turn a doorknob, they can turn a stove knob too. Store the stove knobs in a drawer when not in use or purchase knob safety covers. 
   

3- Avoid candles. 

If you have pets (especially cats), a lit candle can be an temptation. If you enjoy the ambience of candlelight, try an electronic alternative. It may be less romantic, but it’s safer.
  

4- Secure your fireplace.

A fireplace can be a cozy gathering spot for our pets, but a stray spark can quickly ignite nearby a rug or dog bed. Move fabric items away from a fireplace when in use, and consider a glass fireplace guard to keep embers in their place.
  

5- Secure electrical cords. 

Pets can easily mistake a tangle of electrical wires for a chew toy. Check out this Pinterest board for creative ways to bind cords together and secure them! 
   

6- Avoid placing glass water bowls on wood decks. 

Here’s one you may not have thought of: a glass water bowl left in the sun can act as a magnifying glass and focus the sun’s rays into a hot beam. On a wood deck not properly treated with flame-retardants, that heat could start a fire. Consider using a plastic or metal bowl instead.
  

7- Keep leashes and collars near the door. 

If you need to leave your home in an emergency, keep your pet gear handy and close to a safe exit. If your pets are not microchipped, be sure they have identification on their collars.
  

8- Pet-proof a room for young pets. 

Energetic young pets are more likely to get into mischief than their more cautious elders.When leaving them alone in the house for more than a few minutes, consider a crate or pet-proofed room to keep them out of trouble. For longer trips, consider boarding your pets at a reputable kennel.

    

9- Have a fire evacuation plan in place. 

It’s always a good idea to have a Fire evacuation Plan and to practice getting your pets out of harm’s way. Assigning a family member responsibility for each pet can help avoid chaos in an emergency.

  

10- Don’t leave an open flame unattended. 

Our Pets are curious, but they don't understand the risks posed by fire. A toppled candle or spilled grease can quickly become a tragic accident.
