Fireplace Safety For Pets πŸ”₯

Now that winter is in full swing, a fire safety for pets refresher is in order…

Thanks for keeping your pets and hooman family members safe.

  • Watch your pet when the fire is going.
  • Use a fireplace safety gate in front of the fireplace.
  • Train your pet to stay away from the fireplace.
  • Avoid flying embers. Use a fireplace screen or glass door on the fireplace.
  • Keep the hearth area clear of any flammable materials.
  • Avoid playing near an open fireplace.
  • Keep fireplace supplies (matches, starter chips, lighters) out of reach.
  • Be careful of mantel decorations (holly, garland, lights) – cats can pull things down and start a fire.
