National Pet Fire Safety Day

July 15

National Pet Fire Safety Day - July 15

National Pet Fire Safety Day is a day when every pet owner must take the time to figure out how to save a pet during a fire. This topic seems insignificant only at first glance, but the statistics show the opposite. Think about it, in America alone, about 40,000 pets die every year from fires. The main cause of death is smoke inhalation. For many people, the death of a furry pet becomes a real tragedy, which is why every pet owner should know how to protect him from smoke and fire.

The History

National Pet Fire Safety Day was first celebrated in 2009, and since then it has not lost its relevance. The holiday was established by ADT Security in cooperation with the Kennel Club. Representatives of the two organizations wanted to devote one day a year to informing pet owners about the rules for protecting animals in case of fire.

How to keep your pet safe

  • If you have a fireplace in your house or like to light candles, never leave your pet alone with fire.
  • When you leave home, remove the handles from the stove or cover them with special lids.
  • Hang a sign at the entrance to notify firefighters that there are animals in the house.
  • Be sure to consider a fire escape plan so that you know where to go in case of danger.
  • Install smoke detectors in your home and check them regularly.
  • In the event of a fire, be sure to take your pet to a veterinary clinic, where they will conduct an examination and confirm that everything is in order with the animal.
  • Talk to your veterinarian about how pets show symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning and how to give first aid.

How to celebrate

If you still have not developed a fire evacuation plan, start celebrating National Pet Fire Safety Day with this – think over and draw a plan, work it out so that you can act clearly and smoothly in case of danger.
