Seventy percent of U.S. households, or about 90.5 million families, own a pet, according the American Pet Products Association (APPA) 2021-2022 National Pet Owners Survey.  During a fire, your first priority is to get yourself and your family members out safely.  Having a fire evacuation plan for your Twin Lake home helps to keep you and your family a little more calm.  Since our pets are a part of our families, don't forget to add them into your plan.

Preparation is key when it comes to protecting your pets in a fire.  In case your pets are in an unsafe location that you or a family member can't get to during a fire, there are several things that you can do to better the chance of your pets rescue:

  • Keep your pet in a room or area that is easily accessible to fire fighters.
  • Update your pet alert window cling on the front window of your home.
  • Put together a disaster supply kit just for your pets, including medications, food, and other dog supplies.
  • Place important pet ownership documents and proof of vaccinations in a fire safe box that you can easily retrieve.
  • Teach your pets the "Come" command so you can easily direct them towards you in an emergency.
