Losing a pet due to a house fire can be a devastating experience. As most pet owners leave their furry companions home alone when they go to work, pets are left to fend for themselves in the event of a house fire. While affixing 'rescue alert stickers" to your home can be helpful to first responders, saving the pet's life is not assured. Unlike humans who instinctively run out during fires, pets instinctively look for a hiding place to protect them from the fire.
The Clear Lake Emergency Medical Services has been a sponsor of this program since 2014 and has placed these life saving kits onboard all of our ambulances. As our slogan states, "CLEMS - Your Community Partner", we feel that not only do we need to treat our human patients, but our animal patients also.
