Protect Your Furry Friends At Home

According to the National Fire Protection Association, 500,000 pets suffer from smoke inhalation, and 40,000 die due to house fires. So, how can you prevent your pet from being a part of these statistics? Even if you already have battery or AC-powered smoke/carbon monoxide detectors, without monitoring, who would call the fire department before a disaster?

How a monitored system works

When smoke or CO is sensed in your home, the detector will send a message to your system, causing the sirens to sound. The panel will then relay the emergency signal to your monitoring center, where first responders will be dispatched, whether you are home, asleep, or away.

Gain greater protection and put the safety of your home, family, and pets first with a monitored system that can detect smoke and deadly CO while easily integrated into a new or existing security system.

Other ways you can protect your pet in case of emergency

1. Keep pets near entrances/exits when away from home

Whether you kennel your pet or let them roam, be sure to put their kennel, bed, tower, etc., close by an entrance, so if first responders need to rescue your pet, they won't have to look too hard. Keeping collars on pets and leashes close by the exit is also a great way to ensure an efficient rescue. Keeping access easy to the essentials for your pet is key!

2. Make an emergency kit for your pet

Have your pets' medical records printed within the kit. Have food, water, treats, and any medication your pet may be taking labeled. Your emergency kit should also include extra collars and leashes.
