Some time ago one of my colleagues had a shortcut in an extension wire and half of her house burned down. It was very sad. She didn’t have any fire alarms in the house or any type of preparation in case of fire. Just like many people she didn’t think it would happen to her. She and her family only had time to run for their life and couldn’t rescue anything. Just a few weeks ago I had a problem in my main electric system ( in believe you call it a fuse box in English) . I was just in time because parts if it already turned brown from the dangling wire. If not for our qaurentine I might have not even noticed something was strange. Just few days after a house in our neigbourhood caught fire. They had to throw the dog out of the window from the first floor. Poor animal broke two of his legs but they did survive.
It really made me scared because I’ll really go crazy if something happened to our house, not only for myself and my son but how am I ever going to rescue all my animals? I already had some things prepared but now I got a little crazy and started preparing for the worst like fire alarm in every room possible, bought fire blankets and fire extinguishers and even an emergency ladder so we can get out from the top floor. There are a pile of pillow cases in the snake rooms so I can throw them in and carry them ect. Even called an electrician to fix extra electrical sockets so I almost don’t have to use extention wires in the snake room anymore, because they are a know cause for many fires.
Now I was just wondering, did anyone of you ever had an experience with fire or flood or some other danger to you and your animals? How did you handle it? And did anyone of you prepare for that and if yes, what did you do?
