Pet Fire Safety

1/24/2019 (Permalink)

The best way to protect your pet from the effects of a fire is to have them incorporated in to your own fire safety plan if a fire was to break out. Below are some tips on how to prevent your pet from starting a fire.

Prevent Your Pet from Starting Fires

  1. Extinguish Open Flames

Animals are generally curious beings and have a tendency sometimes to explore household items, such as a lit candle, that can put both them and your family in danger. Be sure to put out all candles if you will not be nearby.

  1. Remove Stove Knobs

It is important to remove or cover stove knobs that pets could potentially turn on while you are out of the house.

  1. Invest in Flameless Candles

As discussed above, candles can be a dangerous item to have lit when pets are around. Investing in flameless candles can be a much safer option and save you from worrying about blowing out candles before leaving a room.

  1. Secure Young Pets

Puppies and kittens are some of the most curious animals when they are babies so take extra precautions if you have a young pet to avoid potential dangers.
