New tip sheet reminds us to take care with pets

title

By Lisa Braxton

Because of my cat Savannah’s insatiable desire to leap on all kinds of surfaces in my home–furniture, countertops, appliances–and her ability to find new and creative ways to knock things over, claw at them, and chew through them, I’ve spent countless hours figuring out how to “cat-proof” my home to keep her safe and my belongings relatively intact.

NFPA’s Pet Fire Safety tip sheet reminds us that our pets’ habits can be more than just mildly annoying. Pets can cause fires. The tip sheet, as well as many other tips sheets NFPA provides, can be customized with the fire department or organization’s name and contact information.
