Keeping Your Fur Babies Safe
Do you have pets in your home? Dogs and Cats for many of us are our children and keeping them safe in an emergency is equally as important. Dogs and cats are particularly curious animals and sometimes that can actually result in fires if you don't take a few extra precautions.
Did you know?
"Pets and wild animals have a part in starting about 700 home fires per year. Roughly three-quarters of these fires were started by cooking equipment, fireplaces or chimneys, lighting, or candles."(NFPA)
To protect your home and pets here are a few simple things you can do to be safe:
"Consider battery-operated, flameless candles. They can look and smell like real candles.
Some pets are chewers. Watch pets to make sure they don’t chew through electrical cords. Have any problems checked by a professional."
