NVFC to raise awareness on Pet Fire Safety Day

Leaving pets at homes can sometimes lead to fire accidents
Cute suspect? Pet Fire Safety Day will remind people to keep a watch on pets and prevent pet started home fires

Pet Fire Safety Day is designed to educate pet owners about potential risks when pets are left home.

Pet Fire Safety Day is on July 15, and the National Volunteer Fire Council is partnering with ADT Security Services to raise public awareness about pet fire hazards. NVFC is seeking examples of pets that have started home fires to use in the public safety and awareness campaign.

The Pet Fire Safety Day is designed to educate pet owners about potential risks when pets are left home alone as well as to provide the public with fire prevention and home safety measures to ensure the safety of everyone in the household, including pets.

With an estimated 500,000 pets affected by home fires each year, Pet Fire Safety Day educates the public on how they can prevent and prepare for emergencies and present solutions for reducing these tragic instances.

If your department has seen an instance of a pet starting a house fire within the past year, please contact Kimberly Ettinger at kettinger@nvfc.org or 888-ASK-NVFC (275-6832).
