Fire Safety Tips For Your Pets

Fire safety is a crucial aspect of home safety, and it’s important to remember that our beloved pets are also at risk in the event of a fire. In fact, according to the American Kennel Club, an estimated 500,000 pets are affected by house fires each year in the United States. In order to keep your pets safe in the event of a fire, it’s important to follow these fire safety tips:

Keep Your Pets’ Identification Up To Date

In the event that your pet becomes lost or separated from you during a fire, having updated identification can make it easier for them to be reunited with you. This can include a collar with a tag featuring your contact information, or a microchip that can be scanned at a shelter or veterinary clinic.

Designate A Pet-safe Area In Your Home 

In the event of a fire, it’s important to have a designated area in your home where your pets can safely wait while you evacuate. This can be a crate, carrier, or a specific room with easy access to the outside.

Have A Plan In Place For Evacuating Your Pets

Make sure that everyone in your household knows what to do in the event of a fire, including how to safely evacuate your pets. Practice your evacuation plan with your pets to ensure that they are familiar with the process.

Keep Your Pets’ Escape Routes Clear

Make sure that there are no obstacles in your pets’ escape routes, such as gates or fences that could block their exit. Keep leashes and carriers easily accessible in case you need to quickly grab your pets and evacuate.

Keep Your Pets’ Area Free Of Hazards.

Make sure that your pets’ area is free of any potential fire hazards, such as candles or open flames. Keep your pets away from appliances and cords, and make sure that they don’t have access to any potentially dangerous chemicals.

Create A Pet Emergency Kit 

Just as you would have an emergency kit for yourself and your family, it’s important to have one for your pets as well. This can include items such as food, water, a leash, a carrier, and any necessary medical supplies.

Have Vaccination Records And Medical Information Easily Accessible

In the event that you need to take your pets to a shelter or to a veterinarian, it’s important to have their vaccination records and medical information easily accessible. This can help ensure that they receive the necessary care.

Ensure your pet is wearing a collar at all times

You want to be able to quickly and easily grab their leads if there is a fire in your house. Additionally, if they fled in fear, having their collar on will make it simple for whoever finds them to return them to your family.

Opt For Stainless Steel Or Ceramic Bowls

If your pet’s bowls are on a wooden floor, this is crucial. The wood under the bowl may actually begin to burn when sunlight is refracted and heated through glass and water, causing a fire. 

Things To Take Away

By following these fire safety tips, you can help ensure that your pets are safe in the event of a fire. It’s also essential to have working smoke alarms and fire sprinklers in your home and to practice fire safety techniques. By taking these precautions, you can help protect both yourself and your pets in the event of a fire.

I have used RAD for a couple of projects and found them to be good to deal with. They did a pair of 3 storey open plan houses and seven three and four story town houses. The sprinklers were to improve fire safety, allow more flexible space and comply with building regulations. The sprinklers were far more cost effective than the mist type systems and look very discrete when installed.

It has been a pleasure to deal with RAD for installation of fire sprinklers at our site is Sevenoaks. They were fast, professional, working to time and quote, which made it easy to work with them.

My requirement was a bit unusual for RAD in that I wanted a mist system in one room of a rented house. I had no drawings or technical back up. RAD were very helpful and repositioned the unit after the initial installation. Luckily with the help of Sonny, the engineer it all worked out very well.

As somebody who feels that it should be a necessity for all properties to have fire sprinkler systems, I am a big fan of this company. I have used them numerous times to service my home system and they are very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend their service.
