Keeping your pets safe in case of house fires!

If you must leave and go to a shelter it’s important to understand, you most likely will not be able to bring pets with you to a public shelter. There are usually separate shelters set up for pets.

Regardless, it’s a good idea to prepare an emergency evacuation kit for your pets in case you need to leave your home quickly.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has a list of items you will want to include in your pet’s evacuation kit:

  • Copies of Vaccination Records
  • Medication or a List of Needed Medications
  • Lists of Any Special Needs or Allergies
  • Ownership Records (things like adoption paperwork, microchip paperwork registration papers, or at least photos of you with your pets)
  • Leashes, Harnesses, Collars and/or Carriers
  • Pet Food and Treats (enough for each pet for 3 to 7 days)
  • Water (enough for each pet for 3 to 7 days)
  • Bowls
  • Cat Litter and Box
  • Dog Waste Bags
  • Toys
  • Blankets
  • A Pet First Aid Kit (including cotton bandage rolls, bandage tape, scissors, antibiotic ointment, medical-type gloves, isopropyl alcohol and saline solution)
  • Cleaning Supplies (in case your pet has an accident)
  • List of Important Phone Numbers (including your veterinarian, local animal shelters, local pet-friendly hotels, local animal control, local pet boarders)

At SERVPRO of Brown County, our pets are our family and we know it’s the same for many families in the Green Bay Area. Be sure to plan ahead to keep those four-legged family members safe!

Staying safe in the summer heat

7/29/2021 (Permalink)

In the Green Bay area, we are certainly feeling the heat as we get into the dog days of summer.

With the one-two punch of high temperatures and humidity, the weather can feel downright miserable. But, besides just being uncomfortable, the heat can present a lot of dangers as well.

According to the CDC, prolonged exposure to extreme heat can lead to heat exhaustion, which can lead to heat stroke, a potentially life-threatening condition. The signs of heat exhaustion include heavy sweating; weakness; cold, pale and clammy skin; nausea or vomiting; and fainting. The CDC says the signs of heat stroke are a body temperature of 103 degrees or higher, rapid and strong pulse, and possible unconsciousness.

If you suspect someone is suffering from heat stroke or exhaustion, you must call 911 immediately and move that person to a cool location.

You can take several steps to prevent heat stroke and exhaustion. The first is to stay inside a cool location, if possible.

If you absolutely must be outside in the heat, experts advise wearing loose and light-color clothes, staying hydrated, avoiding caffeine and alcohol, and applying sunscreen often.

Ready.gov also advises you follows these tips to prepare your home for extreme heat conditions:

  • Install window air conditioners snugly.
  • Check air conditioning ducts for proper insulation.
  • Install temporary window reflectors to reflect heat back outside.
  • Weather-strip doors and windows to keep cool air in and hot air out.
  • Cover windows with drapes, shades or awnings.
  • Keep storm windows up year ‘round.

Summer is a fun time of year, so enjoy it, but keep yourself and your loved ones safe!

Plan, Prevent, Protect

PLAN, PREVENT, PROTECT

Here are a few ways to prevent a fire:

Install smoke alarms on every level of your home, inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas. 

Test smoke alarms every month. If they’re not working, change the batteries.

Talk with all family members about a fire escape plan and practice the plan twice a year.

If a fire occurs in your home, GET OUT, STAY OUT and CALL FOR HELP. Never go back inside for anything or anyone.

Fire Safety Basics:

# 1 Cause of fires is cooking.

  • Don’t cook if you are tired.
  • Don’t cook while drinking alcohol.
  • If a fire starts, put a cover on the fire immediately.
  • Call 911

For grease fires, there are a few extremely important things to remember:

  • Do not use water
  • Do not transfer the burning pot anywhere 
  • Only baking soda can be used, not any other baking materials 

# 2 Portable Heaters

  • Never leave a heater near clothes or a bare wall may cause a gradual build-up of heat that results in igniting the flammable object, piece of furniture, or wall.
  • Be aware that heaters that use fuel (like kerosene) are more likely to cause a house fire than their electrical counterparts. 

# 3 Candles

 Candles account for 3% of all home fire deaths. Roughly one-third of all house fires started by candles are ignited in the bedroom. Twenty-one candle fires are reported per day, causing 6% of home fire injuries. 

NEVER leave a candle unattended and always blow them out when leaving.

The team at SERVPRO of Brown County knows all about the aftermath resulting from accidental fires. That is why you need to know the place your family calls home is in great hands when we get involved in the restoration process.
