Pet safety

You love your pets and they are an important part of your life. Make sure they are safe around the home by ensuring candles are not left unattended and extension cords are kept safely away from their claws and teeth.

If you must leave your home in a fire, do not return to search for pets. They may already have found a way to safety. Firefighters will search for and rescue any animals left behind in a home.

The City of Calgary's Animal and Bylaw Services department provides a vinyl window sticker to notify emergency responders that a dog or cat may be in the residence. This is particularly important if you are not at home, or unable to provide information about your pet at the time of the incident.
