Do you have a plan for your pet in the event of a fire at your home? According to the Red Cross home fires are the most common disaster and also the most preventable. You need to protect not only yourself but your pets in case of fire. Here are some very important fire safety tips from the Pet First Aid App:
Make sure you have a working smoke alarm on every floor of your home. It’s easy to forget to remember to change out batteries if you don’t have hardwired alarms. A great way to remember is to test your smoke alarms when you change your clocks twice a year for daylight savings time.
Make sure your pets are included in your emergency and disaster plans.
Practice evacuation routes with your pets—make sure you are able to get them and you to safety.
