Today, July 15, 2021, is National Pet Fire Safety Day. Our pets are like family, and we need to remember to include them in our fire safety plans.


According to the National Fire Protection Association, pets and wildlife start about 700 home fires a year, for example by accidentally turning on the stove or knocking over a lamp.

We all love our pets, and the last thing we want to think about is one of them getting hurt in a fire.

Here are some tips to make sure no one gets harmed during a fire, including our pets.
