As we gear up for colder weather, some of us operate woodstoves and fireplaces in our homes. We also often enjoy the warmth and coziness of flickering candlelight. Such warmth can also be destructive. National Fire Prevention Week is Oct. 6 – 12, 2013. Thousands of pets die because of fire every year. Just as we plan for evacuations of our human family members in case of fire, we should also prepare to help the furry ones who share our homes.
Keeping your family, including the furry ones, from fire harm is critical, so ensure to the best of your ability everyone’s safety. National Fire Prevention Week is a good time to consider the fire hazards around your home and doing whatever you can to prevent such an emergency.
