Did you know that according to the National Fire Protection Association, having a working smoke alarm reduces one’s chances of dying in a fire by nearly half? This stat refers to our human friends, but I can only assume the same goes for us pets. Having an escape plan is important, but working smoke alarms and your escape plan go hand-in-hand. Make sure your pet parent took time this weekend to replace all of your smoke alarm batteries. If not, make sure they do before you go to bed tonight!
