Are My Pets Included in My Fire Evacuation Plan?

You may have a family evacuation plan set up, but have you considered what you would do with your pets in a fire emergency? Here are some tips for making sure that your pets are taken care of should the unthinkable happen at your home in Perry, OK:

1. Pet Tags and Microchip

One of the most important tips for pet safety is to make sure that your pets are always easily identifiable. In addition to a collar with your pet’s name and your contact information, you can have your pet microchipped. Make sure that pets also wear their rabies tag.

2. Pet Fire Escape Plan

Your pet preparation will be an addition to the family evacuation plan that you should already have in place. Be sure that you know your pet’s hiding places. Have leashes, crates and carriers easily accessible. Pets such as birds, reptiles and rodents will be caged, so plan a way to quickly remove the cage. Place your phone number, pet name and medical needs on these carriers in case you and your pets get separated.

3. Pet Rescue Decal

Many pet stores and animal welfare sites have decals that you can place on a window to alert emergency responders that pets are in your home in the case of a fire emergency. You can write your pet info such as the number of pets and types of pets and an emergency contact phone number. These are usually placed at the front door.

4. Pet Emergency Kit

Keep a pet emergency kit close to an exit. Include your pet’s medical information such as medications and allergies. It is helpful to include blankets, toys, food, water and bowls. Keep it in a waterproof bag and make it light enough to handle in case you have to leave in a hurry.
No one likes thinking about something as devastating as a fire emergency at their home. But having a plan eliminates some of the worry. Once everyone is safely out of the home, a fire cleanup expert can help your family’s life return to normal as soon as possible.
