In a fire emergencies, fire fighters can sometime save an animal’s life if they know there’s a pet who needs to be rescued before the fire gets too dangerous. A smart, simple way to do this is with a window sticker you can get for free from most vets and pet stores that tells first responders how many pets are inside the house at a glance.
If possible, having a pet on a leash or in a carrier during a fire will keep you in control of the situation. The smoke, noise, and heat can spook a pet and cause them to run, so keep leashes, collars, carriers—whatever you need to get out of the door safely with your pet—right next to the place where they sleep.
No one wants to think of the possibilities of a fire or a pet running away, but being prepared through fire preparation and electric dog fence packages can give you more security in your pets safety.
