Happy National Pet Fire Safety Day!

It's smart to have a "fire plan" in place with everyone in your household.  This will reduce the risk of a pet being harmed or dying during a house fire.   In the case that a pet is left inside during a fire, once everyone is out, only firemen should go back inside for them.  They are equipped and know best how to try to find and save your pet.  Also, more and more town fire departments are now equpping themselves with pet oxygen masks to help struggling animals when retreived from inside.  Yay!

A few tips to prevent "dog ignited" fires...

*ALWAYS make sure you have working smoke detectors in your home

* Keep burning candles out of your dog's reach

* Stove knob covers are a good idea if you have a dog who tends to jump on counters

* Keep electrical cords out of a chewing dog's reach


Happy National Pet Fire Safety Day!  Have a plan!
