Protect Your Pets From A Fire

Help to save your pets and consider these tips when leaving your home

Keep pets close to the entrances while you're away from home.

Keep your pet collars and leashes ready in case your pet needs to be saved by firefighters

When you leave your pets home alone, keep them in areas or rooms near the exits where the firefighters can quickly spot them.

Save rescuers time by attaching the pet warning window to the cling and write down the number of pets inside your house and connect the static cling to the front door.

Prevent Your Pets from Starting Fires

The National Fire Protection Association estimates that almost 1,000 home fires are accidentally caused every year by pet owners. The American Kennel Club and ADT Security Services have joined forces to provide the following tips:

  • Extinguish Open Flames
    Pets are typically curious about cooking appliances, candles, or even a fire in your fireplace. Ensure that your pet is not left unattended by an open flame and ensure that any open flame is absolutely extinguished before you leave your home.
  • Remove the stove knobs
    Be sure to remove the stove knobs or protect them with the covers before you leave the house-the stove or stove is the number one piece of equipment where your pet can start a fire.
  • Invest in Flameless Candles
    These candles have a light bulb rather than an open flame, and they take the danger of your pet knocking on a candle. Cats are famous for starting fire when their tails turn on lit candles.
  • Protected Young Pets
    Keep them protected from potential fire hazards when you're away from home, such as in cages or behind child gates in secure areas.
