Whether you live in an apartment or condo, connected housing units make it harder to prevent and control fires. Residential fires can be a terrifying scenario for pet owners, but fortunately there are a number of steps you can take to make sure your pet is safe in the event of a fire. For instance, before signing a lease on an apartment, you should check that the complex is up-to-code by ensuring there are working smoke detectors and fire extinguishers. If the complex doesn’t pass the inspection, talk to the leasing agent to have this rectified before signing the lease.

Emergencies often arise when we least expect them but managing to remain calm and knowing what to do when disaster strikes can make all the difference to keeping yourself, your family and your pets safe from harm.

Leaving pets out of your evacuation plans could put not only your animal, but other people living in your home and even first responders in danger. Therefore, preparing your pet for an emergency should be a priority when you first become her owner.
