BoRegards Pet Safety Plaque Review

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

Fire safety and fire awareness should be a priority in our homes. Statistics are quite alarming regarding how home fires affect average people, such as every 22 seconds a fire department responds to an emergency situation and every 82 seconds a home structure fire is reported with one civilian fire injury reported every 31 seconds and death occurring every 2 hours and 38 minutes. Most of us are required to have smoke detectors, but 63% of home fire related deaths were in homes where the alarm was not working. Wow. These are just a few facts that I learned when I received a Pet Safety Plaque from BoRegards. With such alarming facts are we truly prepared? Are we checking our smoke detectors? Do you have an E.D.I.T.H. (exit drills in the home) that you practice regularly? 70% of use Americans do not have one! I’m going to be honest, we didn’t either! Not only did I receive a beautiful plaque to alert emergency personnel of the presence of our beloved pets, but I also learned a lot about fire safety that I wasn’t practicing regularly! BoRegards includes a wealth of information with each Pet Safety Plaque that is important for EVERY person and family to know!

Some of the bonus items and information I received with my plaque

BoRegards Pet Safety Plaques are designed to bring special attention to special members of our family – our pets! Unfortunately, there was a duplex fire in a nearby neighborhood recently and both families lost everything – including their family pets. A lot of families came together to help them replace their necessities, but we obviously can’t replace our pets. My heart was broken for their families, and the need for not only fire awareness but the importance of notifying emergency personnel of our pets’ presence became very real. I know for us our pets are family – not only are they family, but they’re also understanding companions to our special needs kids. We want to make sure they’re protected in an emergency as well!

For the review I was sent a Burnished Brass Pet Safety Plaque. BoRegards Pet Safety  Plaques are made in the USA, which is always a product point we love! When I received it I was amazed at all the information it included like that pictured above! It made me re-think how we handle fire safety as a family and we now have a good plan of action that we will practice regularly that includes the whole family! I hung the Pet Safety Plaque immediate within our front door, so when you open the door it’s the first thing you see! The plaque is beautiful! It comes with two anchors and screws and was very simple to install! I was amazed by the size! You truly can’t miss it, and it looks beautiful at the same time! You can purchase the Pet Safety Plaque for $34.95.

This is the first wall you see when you walk in our front door. That is an 8×10 picture above it, so you can see this is a wonderful size plaque!

One of the first things firefighters will do in the event of an emergency is turn off your electric box, so we wrote the current date, 1 dog, and 1 cat on the In Case of Emergency sticker and put it on our electric box. We also plan on ordering more of the stickers (also available for individual sale on BoRegards.com for $5.00) for our back door. The rectangle clear sticker I also filled out with date, 1 dog, and 1 cat and placed it on the upper right-hand corner of the plaque where it fits beautifully. I originally used a blue permanent marker, but I do suggest black because it is much easier to read! I also read all of the information we received and, as I said, learned a lot and made a new action plan that we will practice regularly!

 I am happy to have had the chance to check out BoRegards Pet Safety Plaque for myself and will continue to implement all the helpful information I learned! Their passion for sharing fire safety awareness as well as their heart for pets is wonderful!

    The plaque is wonderful but I think the sticker on the electric box will be most beneficial as far as knowing what pets to look for. Thanks for the giveaway.

    • Yes, that was a very helpful tip! There is also a sticker to add to the plaque as well where you can write number of pets as well which I added later! 🙂

  16. This is such a great idea. One of my many jobs is Animal Control Supervisor, and yea that falls under “and all other duties as assigned”. This could save a lot of pets and thank you for helping to educate the public. I will certainly pass this product on to our animal control officers

    I have stickers on all our doors alerting the fire department of the number of pets we have (we have many!) I never thought of the electrical box and my husband, who is a contractor, had not seen it on any boxes he has worked on but its a brilliant idea. I am adding an emergency sticker to our electrical box today. Thanks!!!
