The combined efforts of the Kennel Club and ADT Security Services led to the first National Pet Fire Safety Day being held in the late 2000s. The idea behind the event is to make pet owners aware of the hazards their beloved cat, dog, or other animals could pose in the home with regard to fire.

Many fires are caused by pets, especially when they are left alone in a property and the intention is that by highlighting the dangers to owners it can help in preventing them.

Pet owners should take advantage of the day to discuss who in a home is responsible for helping a pet escape in the event of a blaze and carry out some practice escape drills.

They can also use Kennel Club advice to pet proof their home against fires and install a pet alert notice in a window for use by emergency services.
