Pet Alert Initiative
Tequesta's Fire-Rescue staff cares about YOU... as well as your special extended family members - YOUR PETS!
So much so, in fact, that we've developed a Pet-Alert sticker that indicates the number and type of pets that may be in your home in times of fire, smoke or other evacuation events. Village residents can obtain a pair of Pet-Alert stickers at the Fire station on Tequesta Drive or during community events.
