Most people have a plan of action in place to help them escape in the event of a fire in the home. However, there’s one aspect of fire safety that many people overlook – pets.
40,000 pets are killed in home fires each year and, although fires can begin for a number of reasons, sometimes they can be caused by pets themselves.
With the majority of pet owners saying that they’d risk their lives to save their furry friends, it makes sense to do everything you can to factor your pet into your home fire safety plan. By doing so, not only can you minimise the likelihood of your pet starting a fire, if an emergency was to happen, you can increase everyone’s chances of escaping safely.
