Did you all know that this is an important week? It's National Fire Prevention Week! It's a week set aside to remind us to do some things around our homes to keep us all safe from fire. This is also a good time to send a huge THANK WOO to all of those that work at Fire Departments, who dedicate their lives to keep us all safe. Did you know that my Canine Mommy - Sissy - owns a very special Fireman? This is a picture of Sissy. She's testing the landscaping in this photo. See:
Her Dad's name is Dave and this is a good week to not only thank him for giving my Mom a great home, but for teaching so many other people how to be good firemen and women. That's a very important job! In honor of Dave, we'd like everyone to think about things they can do to make their homes safer. One thing we should all do is design an escape plan in case there's a fire on our home, and practice it frequently so everyone knows exactly what their job is. Escaping is a Siberian specialty so we can most certainly lend a paw in that department! There are also special window stickers available to alert firefighters that there are furry family members inside that also need to be rescued in case no one is home to tell them. This website has many tips and suggestions for fire drills, safety routes, and other helpful facts.
Happy Fire Prevention Week and Thank Woo to all who keep us safe!
