Prepare for Pet Safety

Pets are family, too!

A fire emergency can occur in our servicing areas at any given moment. Though unexpected, it can be instrumental in having already a strategy in place for everyone, pets included, in your home to evacuate and meet in a safe location. While you should always be most focused on keeping yourself and your family safe, you can be better prepared to keep your pets safe during a fire emergency by following these safety tips:

Practice Evacuating

In the confusion and fear caused by a fire, it can be hard to think of everything you need to do at that moment. If you already have a plan and practice it a couple of times, you can be more prepared to handle a fire emergency. This can be helpful for pet safety and the safety of everyone in your household.

Notice Your Pets Location

An important part of the planning process can be knowing where your pets spend most of their time. It can be especially helpful to note where they hide when frightened, maybe during a thunder or lightning storm. You don’t want to put yourself or your family at risk by spending too much time searching for your dog or cat during a fire emergency.

Keep Any Collars and Leashes Nearby

Fire emergencies can be especially frightening to pets. By keeping their collars, leashes, or carriers handy, you can more easily lead them safely out of the house. If you cannot find your pets, it can be easier for the fire department to get them out if they are wearing collars. It can be a good idea to hang leashes by the door you plan to evacuate through.
