1. Keep pets near entrances when away from home. Keep collars on pets and leashes at the ready in case firefighters need to rescue your pet.
2. When leaving pets home alone, keep them in areas or rooms near entrances where firefighters can easily find them.
3. Secure yound pets - Especially puppies, keep them confined, away from potential fire-starting hazards when you are away from home, such as in crates or behind baby gates in secure areas.
4. Since Pets Left alone can't escape a burning house, Consider using monitored smoke detectors which are connected to a monitoring center so emergency responders can be contacted when you're not home. These systems provide an added layer of protection beyond battery-operated smoke alarms.
5. Affix a PET ALERT WINDOW CLING - write down the number of pets inside your home and attach the static cling to your front window. This critical information saves rescuers time when locating your pets.
6. Make sure to update the number of pets listed on this static cling.
