October is Fire Safety Month

Yes, fire safety should include your pet.  How many of us have a fire plan and include our pets?  I know I had not even thought about this until I saw the notice about fire safety.  Here are a few tips to keep in mind for fire safety with our pets.

  • Don’t forget to check the batteries on the smoke detector.
  • Think about your candle placement when pets are around.  The flame might be enticing to the pets.
  • Make sure your fireplace has a guard.
  • Think about placing a rescue sticker on the windows in the rooms your pet’s kennel so fire fighters know where your pets are.
  • Did you know they make oxygen masks for pets?  This would be an excellent donation to your local fire department.
