Space View Park Walkway

New pedestrian bridge will provide tremendous views of space launches.

Space View Park is the site of the latest upgrade to Titusville’s cityscape with its new Walkway Pedestrian Pier, a 200-foot walking pier that connects the Space View Gemini and Mercury Parks across an inlet of the Indian River Lagoon. With the installation of this new bridge, visitors to the park will no longer have to backtrack to visit both sides. The pier includes benches and lighting along the entirety of the span, and will provide space enthusiasts with a spectacular, frontrow view of launches across the river.

The Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) began working on the project in 2019, and in 2020 recommended moving forward with a feasibility study. Taylor Engineering of Jacksonville, Florida was awarded the contract, and in February 2021, they presented a project concept to City Council. That May, approval was given to move forward to the construction engineering phase, and the company was tasked to produce a final design.

In June 2023, after a long evaluation process involving bids from 1,106 contractors — including 43 local businesses — the construction contract was awarded to Rush Marine, a division of Titusville-based Rush Construction. Construction began in January 2024 and was completed in April. There will be a grand opening ribbon cutting on April 22 as part of the Titusville Earth Day celebration at Space View Park.

This project meets the CRA’s plan goal of connecting the City’s parks, providing a waterfront attraction for residents and visitors to view rocket launches and take in the scenic view of the Indian River Lagoon.

Milken Institute Names Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville, FL in Top 10 Best Performing Cities of 2023

[Aerial photo over the A. Max Brewer Parkway looking back at Titusville.]

Even with the economic pressures of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Space Coast has continued to display its resilience and growth! 2023 marked the third year in a row that the Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville, Florida area has appeared in the Milken Institute’s annual Best-Performing Cities report.

The Milken Institute is a nonprofit, nonpartisan group that focuses on financial, physical, mental, and environmental health in an effort to measure progress towards solving global issues. Founded in 1991, Milken publishes research and studies relating to human capital, financial structures, regional economics, and more. Each year, the group creates an objective framework to evaluate the relative performance of US cities, releasing a report to document the best-performing cities in the nation.

First featured in 2021, the Space Coast appeared on the report at the number two spot in the nation, followed by a number five spot in 2022 and a number 10 spot in the newest report for 2023. While a number of factors have influenced the county’s high ranking, perhaps none are more significant than the incredible growth of population, employment, and GDP attributed to the thriving aerospace industry. Employment in the high-tech sector has grown massively in the past several years, with companies such as SpaceX and L3Harris initiating both job and wage growth in the region. Incoming employees of these big companies generally also settle down within the county, due to its regional amenities and relative affordability.

“Despite the drop, the area remains among the top 25 large cities in terms of the prominence of its high-tech industry, ranking 11th in high-tech GDP concentration and 24th in number of high-tech industries with LQ >1,” the report reads. “Brevard County’s largest city also boasts the fifth-highest five-year job growth rate, with a 12.6 percent increase in total employment since 2016.”

In addition to aerospace, the report cites pharmaceutical, machinery manufacturing, and scientific research and development as other massive areas of growth since 2016. In fact, per the report, Brevard County is responsible for the largest share of STEM-related jobs in the entire state of Florida.

With the strong state of these areas — along with aerospace and defense — we’re excited to see what 2024 has in store for the Space Coast!

Enjoying Life on the Lazy River

[Background image depicting an old Florida map, circa late-19th century.]

The St. Johns River — one of the few rivers in the United States that flows north — is one of the laziest rivers in the world. During its slow 310-mile northerly journey, the St. Johns River morphs from a marsh in Indian River County into a broad waterway with expansive views as it flows northeast into the Atlantic Ocean, dropping in elevation by less than 30 feet — or about one inch per mile. In Brevard County, the marsh becomes a navigable river, gently twisting as it crawls north.

The River is divided into three watersheds — or basins — the upper, middle, and lower basins. Because the river flows north, the upper basin is the area to the south that forms its marshy headwaters in Indian River and Brevard counties. The middle basin is the area in Central Florida where the river widens, forming lakes Harney, Jesup, Monroe and George. The lower basin is in Northeast Florida from Putnam County to the river’s mouth near Jacksonville and Mayport.

Titusville is nestled at the end of the upper basin, about three miles to the east of the river. Accessible from fish camps and boat ramps located along SR 50 or SR 46, it is in this area that the river widens and becomes extremely fishable and open for boating. The Canaveral Marshes Conservation Area, located south of SR 50 west of Titusville, offers opportunities for hiking, horseback riding, boating, canoeing, wildlife viewing, and fishing. Wildlife is abundant in and around the river and is home to many plant species and marine animals — manatees, largemouth bass and many other types of fish, crabs, shrimp and other shellfish, river otters, waterfowl, blue herons and bald eagles, and alligators and other reptiles.

[Photo of a brim on a fishing hook.]

[Photo of an airboat skimming the water, carrying people on a ride.]

The St. John’s River has long been known as one of the finest largemouth bass fisheries in the world. The Florida strain of largemouth bass grows larger than anywhere else in the species’ range and each spring many northern fishermen come to The St. John’s for a chance to catch the largest bass of their lives. Ten pounders are not uncommon. Bass isn’t the only catch of the day, however, as mullet, catfish, bluegills, shellcrackers, shiners, redfish, speckled trout, flounder, snook, tarpon and bream can also be found in the river, making this natural wonder an angler’s dream destination.

[Graphic map showing the path of the St. John's River and its three main basins: the northern-most spanning from Jacksonville down to around Port Orange is highlighted in green is the Lower Basin; the middle section, adjacent to the previous section, spanning from Palm Coast south past Orlando is highlighted in yellow and is called the Middle Basin; the southern-most region spanning from just north of Titusville down past Palm Bay is highlighted in pink and is the Upper Basin.]

Healing the Waters

Restoration of the Indian River Lagoon is a community effort.

The Indian River Lagoon (IRL), a gem of Florida’s natural beauty and a significant player in our local tourism economy, has long been facing environmental challenges, particularly concerning excess nitrogen and phosphorus pollution. These pollutants, originating from various sources including stormwater runoff and agricultural activities, pose significant threats to the delicate balance of this diverse ecosystem. In response to these challenges, the Save Our Indian River Lagoon (SOIRL) Program was initiated in 2016 through a half-cent sales tax approved by Brevard County residents with the goal of generating revenue dedicated to tackling the escalating environmental issues of the IRL, mitigating pollution sources, eliminating existing pollution loads, and rejuvenating natural filtration systems vital to its health.

The substantial funding generated by the local tax is estimated to be approximately $586 million by 2026. These funds are earmarked for a range of projects aimed at reducing or eliminating over 1.3 million pounds of excess nitrogen and 106 thousand pounds of phosphorus annually from the IRL. Such ambitious goals highlight the program’s commitment to restoring water quality and ecological balance, marking a pivotal step towards environmental restoration.

Holistic Approach to Restoration

The projects undertaken by the SOIRL Program are integral components of a broader strategy to restore the lagoon’s health. Collaborative efforts with organizations such as the National Estuary Program, St. Johns River Water Management District, Brevard County, and local municipalities have been ongoing since the 1990s. These partnerships focus on stormwater improvements, incorporating cutting-edge technologies to enhance pollution control measures and ensure sustainable water management practices.

Additionally, the SOIRL Project Plan serves as a guiding framework, identifying priority projects aligned with water quality targets. Developed in consultation with scientists, economists, environmentalists, and government agencies, this plan delineates local projects aimed at meeting stringent water quality objectives. Its annual review and updates ensure adaptability and efficacy in achieving goals related to lagoon health, productivity, aesthetics, and economic value. Regular updates and reviews ensure the plan remains adaptive and effective in achieving its objectives.

The plan is overseen by the SOIRL Citizen Oversight Committee, which plays a crucial role in ensuring accountability and transparency within the program. By evaluating project timelines, costs, and nutrient removal effectiveness, the committee provides valuable insights and recommendations for continuous improvement. Community engagement is vital, as evidenced by the active participation of citizens, businesses, and non-profit organizations in advocating for lagoon restoration efforts.

Community Engagement

Ultimately, the success of the SOIRL Program hinges on collective action involving public and private partnerships. The community’s engagement in reducing nitrogen and phosphorus outputs from residential and commercial sources is vital. To that end, multiple non-profit groups have joined the fight to save the lagoon through continued dedication, innovation, and collaboration.

One such entity is the Brevard Indian River Lagoon Coalition — an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit, nonpartisan organization, which acts as a unifying force — rallying volunteers, businesses, and organizations toward the goal of saving the IRL.

Through education, support for community initiatives, regular progress updates, and by fostering awareness, collaboration, and advocacy, the coalition works to achieve their vision of a lagoon with “clear waters, alive with lush sea grass beds, thriving fish, birds, manatees and dolphins – a healthy place where our families can play.”

The coalition also serves as an online hub, providing a wealth of information, lagoon news, and resources for individuals and organizations looking to make a difference. From scientific insights to practical conservation tips, the coalition’s online platform empowers stakeholders with the knowledge and tools needed to contribute effectively to lagoon health. Using community forums called Lagoon Straight Talks, the coalition also provides a unique opportunity for direct engagement. With guest speakers sharing expertise and interacting with citizens, these talks foster dialogue, expand knowledge, and inspire action.

Innovative Solutions and Local Initiatives

At the local level, The City of Titusville has implemented innovative stormwater projects to mitigate nutrient pollution entering the lagoon. Stormwater ponds, floating wetlands, and baffle boxes are among the strategies employed to reduce pollutants before they reach waterways. These projects, complemented by the Basin Management Action Plan (BMAP), demonstrate a proactive approach to water quality restoration and environmental sustainability.

Stormwater ponds act as natural filtration systems, capturing pollutants and improving surface runoff quality. Floating wetlands mimic natural wetland processes, enhancing water quality by filtering contaminants. Baffle boxes, specialized structures designed for sediment and pollutant removal, contribute significantly to reducing nutrient levels in stormwater runoff. Titusville’s proactive measures have already shown tangible results, with substantial reductions in nitrogen and phosphorus levels recorded in the lagoon.

Our Legacy Campaign Drives Support for Port Canaveral’s $100 Million Aquarium.

Significant developments have occurred as Brevard Zoo seeks to make their Port Canaveral Aquarium project a captivating addition to the region’s landscape. Situated on a sprawling 14-acre parcel along the Banana River, just south of SR 528 near the Exploration Tower exit, the $100 million venture is currently in the design-engineering process and is set to commence construction by October 2024, with the initial phase scheduled for completion in early 2027.

The Brevard Zoo has played a pivotal role in driving this project forward, successfully raising $55 million through its parent organization, the East Coast Zoological Society. The Our Legacy campaign, orchestrated by the East Coast Zoological Society, has proven instrumental in garnering support for the Port Canaveral Aquarium. Bolstering this initiative, the Brevard County Commission approved a $5 million tourism-tax grant in September 2022, supplementing a prior grant of $10 million.

The aquarium aims to draw approximately 525,000 annual visitors, fostering an economic impact of nearly $85.5 million for the local area. Furthermore, the project is expected to generate around 100 full-time jobs, complementing the existing workforce at Brevard Zoo.

The thematic focus of the Port Canaveral Aquarium will center on the natural waterways of the region, notably the Indian River Lagoon and the St. Johns River. Comprising both indoor and outdoor exhibits, the aquarium seeks to immerse visitors in the realms of science, adventure, and exploration, while also delving into the region’s rich history, encompassing space exploration, sport fishing, the shrimping industry, and the allure of its pristine beaches.

{Continued from above.}

A standout feature of the Port Canaveral Aquarium is its integration of the nearby Banana River, offering an authentic portrayal of dolphins and manatees in their natural habitats. Dr. Duane De Freese, Executive Director of the Indian River Lagoon Council and Indian River Lagoon National Estuary, emphasized the transformational impact of the aquarium project on the Indian River Lagoon, underscoring its role in species recovery and habitat restoration.

The Our Legacy campaign continues to mobilize support for the project, with a dedicated website, ourlegacycampaign.org, providing information and avenues for donations. Importantly, the website outlines that in the event the aquarium project does not materialize, all contributed funds will be directed to the East Coast Zoological Society of Florida’s highest-priority needs.

[Rendering of the entrance to the proposed aquarium.] Caption: Rendering of The Aquarium Project beach entrance with people. (Brevard Zoo)

Adding to the momentum, Ron Jon’s founder Ron DiMenna, and his wife Lynne, have generously contributed $2 million to the Future Aquarium and Conservation Center. This substantial gift, the third-largest private donation to the campaign, will specifically contribute to constructing the beach-themed entrance complex, named in honor of Ron Jon Surf Shop and the Surfing’s Evolution & Preservation Foundation.

Brevard Zoo’s Chief Executive Officer, Keith Winsten, expressed gratitude for this notable contribution, highlighting its substantial impact on realizing the world-class facility’s vision. With this gift, Brevard Zoo has surpassed the two-thirds mark of its $100 million fundraising goal. Additionally, a significant $2.5 million gift from Blain and Annette Nelson will play a pivotal role in funding the Canaveral Lock exhibit at the future Aquarium and Conservation Center. This marks the third largest private donation to the Our Legacy Campaign and underscores the Nelsons’ commitment to supporting environmental education, conservation, and rehabilitation awareness for the coastal ecosystem.

The Canaveral Lock exhibit will showcase a 32,300-gallon sea life habitat emulating the underwater infrastructure of the lock system. The exhibit will provide immersive experiences and convey essential knowledge to inspire sustainable practices for the future.

Now that the campaign has reached the halfway mark through the private fundraising efforts, it’s full steam ahead as they open up to public contributions to reach their $100 million goal.

As the Port Canaveral Aquarium takes shape, the community is grateful for the generosity of these contributors, who play a vital role in shaping a facility that will celebrate and conserve the region’s diverse coastal ecosystems and wildlife for generations to come.

Conde' Nast Traveler - National Travel Magazine Spotlights Playalinda Beach.

[Photo of a child running along a boardwalk leading out to the ocean. (Space Coast Office of Tourism)]

In a recent feature, Conde Nast Traveler magazine has brought to light the hidden gem of Playalinda Beach as the ultimate day trip destination for beach enthusiasts within a three-hour drive of Orlando.

Nestled along the Canaveral National Seashore, Playalinda Beach offers a natural and undeveloped coastline, making it a nature lover’s paradise and a haven for those seeking a relaxing day at the beach.

The article features several unique attributes of the coastal attraction, including the nesting habitat of sea turtles, particularly loggerheads and green turtles, and the lure of the sandy bottom beach break appealing to surfers, with its gently rolling waves. The article also touches on the local scene, including mentions of the Playalinda Brewing Company and the Rooftop Space bar. To read the article in full check out the full article at:

Playalinda - The Beautiful Beach

[Photo of a the shoreline at Playalinda Beach.]

Playalinda Beach, located just north of Kennedy Space Center, is the southernmost of three public beaches within the expansive Canaveral National Seashore, which also includes Apollo and Klondike beaches. Renowned for its unspoiled beauty, Playalinda’s shoreline stands as one of the most pristine and natural beach fronts in Florida.

The name Playalinda is Spanish for “beautiful beach,” and in keeping with undisturbed and minimalist encroachment on the natural landscape, Playalinda offers only restroom facilities, with no concessions or showers located on the property. The 24 miles of undisturbed coastline is inviting to those seeking a return to nature, making Playalinda a perfect destination for outdoor adventure seekers.

The historical roots of Playalinda Beach can be traced back to the Timucuan Indians, who centuries ago, gathered and processed clams on the site, leaving behind a towering mound of discarded shells, now believed to be over 500 years old.

Another noteworthy event was the dramatic conclusion of a world record long-distance flight attempt in 1928 when Harry Brooks, a test pilot for Henry Ford’s Flivver airplane, landed on Playalinda Beach after falling short of his flight from Detroit to Miami. After repairing the leaking plane and damaged propeller, Brooks took off again but mysteriously disappeared, with the wreckage later spotted a mile off the coast of Melbourne Beach.

[Black and white photo of a group of men around a small airplane on the beach, circa 1928.] Caption: Test pilot Harry Brooks on the sitting on the wing of the Ford Motor Company’s Flivver aircraft after a mid-air mishap.

Today, Playalinda Beach welcomes visitors from all over the world, who come to enjoy the seashore’s various outdoor activities such as onshore fishing, birdwatching, surfing, hiking, kayaking, and the occasional rocket launch.

Playalinda has a gated entrance restricting access during certain times of the day. In the winter, the beach is open from 6 AM to 6 PM, while in the spring, summer, and fall, the hours are 6 AM to 8 PM. Vehicle entrance fees vary, with options for cars, motorcycles, pedestrians, and commercial tour vehicles, ensuring that Playalinda Beach remains a well-maintained and accessible destination for nature enthusiasts and beachgoers alike.

[Photo of a kite surfer on the water.]

The Indian River Lagoon and surrounding waterways leading to the beach support a diverse population of wildlife and a vast array of Florida native species, providing ample opportunities for birdwatching. Bird enthusiasts can relish the sight of regularly migrating fowl, including wading birds, shorebirds, gulls, raptors, and terns. The park’s main draw during fall and winter is the possibility of spotting pelagic birds. At the same time, Osprey and Bald eagles are known to inhabit the area, nesting atop towers and perches along the Black Point Wildlife trail.

The park’s main draw during fall and winter is the possibility of spotting pelagic birds. At the same time, Osprey and Bald eagles are known to inhabit the area, nesting atop towers and perches along the Black Point Wildlife trail.

Down on the ground, Canaveral National Seashore is a crucial nesting area for four types of sea turtles: loggerhead, green, leatherback, and Kemp’s Ridley. Sea turtle nesting on these beaches has been recorded since 1985. Nature lovers are even able to take part in a turtle watch program, by reservation only, during June and July.

The park’s Mosquito Lagoon side offers a fishing platform for anglers, complementing the miles of shoreline for offshore fishing.

The beach is also a haven for local surfers, with a sandy bottom and gentle breaks providing an ideal setting for both beginners and moderate surfers. Be sure to stop by local businesses in Titusville for any last-minute needs before crossing the A. Max Brewer Bridge, as there are no shops at the beach. Also heading south from parking area 1, the beach is closed to public access, as this area fronts the space center and is restricted.

On the topic of rockets — for space fanatics, Playalinda Beach offers the closest view of rocket launches available to non-NASA guests. Several launch pads are visible from the beach, including Launch Pad 39 A and B. Park Rangers recommend arriving early due to NASA’s security restrictions surrounding launches. Launch viewing is limited to the operating hours of the seashore, depending on the season.

Playalinda Beach has always been a treasure to local residents and has grown to be a destination for visitors from around the world. If you make a trip to visit, enjoy yourself, and please be sure to clean up any trash or other items; let’s make sure we keep the beach pristine and wonderful for generations to come.

New baffle box gives glimpse into saving lagoon.

Construction was recently completed on the Sand Point Park Baffle Box located within the park near the Indian River Lagoon. What makes this box different from the 12 others installed throughout the city is that it features a clear observation top which allows citizens to observe the treatment process in action.

A Baffle Box is a structure with a series of settling chambers whose primary function is to remove sediment, debris, trash, and associated pollutants from stormwater. The box is then vacuum cleaned and the material is properly disposed of, preventing the it from entering the lagoon. There is also a filtration media used to remove total nitrogen (TN), total phosphorus (TP), total suspended solids (TSS), and pathogens from the water before it enters the Indian River Lagoon.

This box is a great educational tool to help inform citizens about the projects being implemented to improve the health of the Indian River Lagoon. It was funded with assistance from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and Brevard County’s Save our Indian River Lagoon Plan, which allotted $137,135 to help fund the project.

Troy Post, North Brevard Economic Development Zone

The region of North Brevard is an area of East Central Florida that encompasses the City of Titusville, as well as the surrounding communities of Mims, Scottsmoor, and Port St. John. Over the past several years, this community has experienced significant economic growth in not only the aerospace sector — due to its proximity to Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Space Force Station — but also in other sectors as well. Multiple out-of-state businesses have made the decision to relocate to the Titusville area to take advantage of the economic incentives provided, bringing thousands of jobs to the area.

New Business Development

All Points Logistics plans $100 million processing center.

[Rendering of an aerospace building.]

All Points Logistics, a technical services and aerospace technology firm, has announced plans to build a new 260,000 sq. ft. spacecraft processing center and a 270,000 sq. ft. logistics center on a sixty-acre parcel at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in north Brevard County; the complex is expected to take eighteen months to construct, following completion of engineering and architectural plans. The project is expected to cost more than $100 million. The spacecraft processing center will feature several high manufacturing bays, to handle large spacecraft and fairings, some of which have a diameter of 32 feet (10 meters). [Payload fairings are the coverings that protect a spacecraft against the aerodynamic, thermal, and acoustic phenomena forces that act upon it during boost phase.] At present, there is a strong need for these larger bays to accommodate the processing of bulkier satellites and spacecraft.

According to the company’s Vice-President of Business Development, Kevin Brown, the new complex will service the needs of NASA and the U.S. Space Force, along with other commercial aerospace companies. Both facilities will have the capacity to host workers from aerospace firms outside Kennedy Space Center and the Central Florida region, as crews from those companies prepare spacecraft and satellites for launch. Once fully operational, the two facilities are likely to employ 200 people.

Brewery business booming in Brevard County.

[Hydrosaurus Brewing logo, with a "Coming Soon" stamp overlayed.]

HydroSaurus Brewing Company, a start-up brewery company, has announced plans to acquire an existing commercial parcel in downtown Titusville and convert the site into a beverage production area, taproom, and café. According to owner Nicole Corning, the project is expected to result in a capital outlay of over $2 million. An existing building at the site will be removed, and a 4,000 sq. ft. building and patio area will be constructed in its place, with space for a small-scale brewery and bottling operation. HydroSaurus will produce small batch craft beer at the facility/café, then bottle and distribute its product line to bars and restaurants in east central Florida.

For more details, go to www.hydrosaurusbrewing.com. HydroSaurus joins two other breweries currently operating in Titusville: Playalinda Brewing Company and The BRIX Project (which began operations in 2015 and 2018, respectively). Due to rapid population growth in Melbourne, Titusville, and Palm Bay, more breweries have emerged throughout Brevard County. Recognizing this development, the Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast and the Space Coast Office of Tourism recently created the “Space Coast Beer Trail,” which pairs unique craft beers in the county with the many types of rockets being launched at Cape Canaveral.

Traffic Unit Getting Results

[Photo over the shoulder of a police officer using a radar gun on traffic.] Caption: In 2021, speeding was the contributing factor in more than one-third, or 12,330 traffic crash deaths, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

As the City of Titusville continues seeing increased population, new business growth, and a booming space launch tourism industry, traffic has also increased significantly. As a direct response to this growth, Titusville Police Department worked diligently to increase citywide enforcement visibility and improve road safety.

In a focused effort to maintain safe roadways, the Traffic Unit increased its staffing by 100% to 4 officers. Their full-time duties are dedicated to enforcing traffic laws, educating motorists, and citing non-compliant drivers with either a verbal warning, written warning, or a citation.

When traffic statistics between January and March 2023, are compared to those between January and March 2024, significant gains in traffic safety were achieved, including:

  • Overall Traffic Crashes decreased by approximately 6%
  • Traffic Crashes with Injuries decreased by approximately 13%
  • Driving Under the Influence (DUI) Arrests increased by approximately 38%
  • Traffic Stops increased by approximately 125%

The results of these efforts are impressive, but more needs to be done. It requires everyone’s involvement to ensure safe roadways for our residents and our guests. DRIVE SAFE TITUSVILLE!

Titusville Fire gifted life-saving equipment for pets.

Several weeks ago, one of our amazing followers told us about an organization that supplies Pet-sized Oxygen Mask Kits for free to first responders. After filling out a request for these kits, we were later contacted by the staff Mona Pants Foundation who related kits were on the way! We want to express our gratitude for providing these much-needed kits for our apparatus.

[Photo of new pet-sized oxygen masks sitting on the front of a fire engine.]

The Mona Pants Foundation raises funds to supply first responders with Petsized Oxygen Mask Kits. At Mona Pants, our mission is to get these kits on every emergency response vehicle. Our program supplies pet oxygen mask kits to first responders across the country, ensuring that our furry friends receive proper care in emergency situations.

Each kit costs about $85-$100. These kits help first responders provide life-saving oxygen to pets who have been involved in fires, smoke inhalation, and other emergencies. We believe that every pet deserves to receive the same level of care and attention as their human counterparts.

EMS Week May 19-25, 2004

Pet Fire Safety

[Photo of several dogs on leashes.]

Pets give us comfort, friendship, and unconditional love. Our connection to them can be among the strongest relationship in our lives. But pets can cause fires. We need to be careful with pets in the home.

Safety Tips:

  • Pets are curious. They may bump into, tum on, or knock over cooking equipment. Keep pets away from stoves .and countertops.
  • Keep pets away from candles, lamps, and space heaters.
  • Always use a metal or heat-tempered glass screen on a fireplace and keep it in place.
  • Keep pets away from a chimney's outside vents. Have a "pet-free zone" of at least 3 feet (1 meter) away from the fireplace. Glass doors and screens can stay dangerously hot for several hours after the fire goes out.
  • Consider battery-operated, flameless candles. They can look and smell like real candles.
  • Some pets are chewers. Watch pets to make sure they don't chew through electrical cords. Have any problems checked by a professional.

Smoke Alarms:

  • Have working smoke alarms on every level of the home. Test your smoke alarms at least once a month.
  • If the smoke alarm sounds, get out and stay out.
  • Never go back inside for pets in a fire. Tell firefighters if your pet is trapped.

Come learn how to save a life with our free American Red Cross Hands-Only CPR Class.

Pets and Wildfires: Make sure pets are included in your family's wildfire evacuation plan. Build an evacuation kit for each pet in you household. Ensure each kit is a size and weight that can be quickly and easily loaded into a vehicle when packing to evacuate.

[Photo of a cat.]

Fact: Pets or wild animals have a part in starting about 750 home fires per year. These involve cooking equipment, fireplaces and chimneys, space heaters, lamps, bulbs, wiring, and candles.
