July 15 is recognized as National Pet Fire Safety day in the United States. It is a day set aside to raise awareness about house fires and educate homeowners on keeping their pets safe. The American Kennel Club and ADT Security designated this day in 2008 and both hold special events and publish materials designed to help pet owners.
According to National Fire Protection Association over 500,000 pets are affected by house fires each year. And more concerning, over 1,000 fires are actually started by pets!
As a pet owner, one of your responsibilities is to safeguard not only your pet but also your home in order to keep them safe and secure. You never know when a fire may start, you may be home and able to get yourself and your pet out of the house quickly, but you may not be home and you need to ensure you have measures in place to protect and safeguard your pets. You must plan for unanticipated emergencies. – Petnet.io
