Make you own firefighters window decal!
Help firefighters and rescue workers save your pets by letting them know information about your pets.
I wanted to make a window decal with pictures of my pets so that rescue workers would know how many dogs I have, be able to identify them and call them by name.
I want to share this simple idea so that other people will make window decals. Hopefully, pets are saved by providing a little information.
First, take pictures of pets with a phone and save as a jpeg. Then save the pictures on a computer. Other options are to take photos of pets and scan them on the computer, or just use the photos and tape them to the window.
Open a new PowerPoint file, and transfer pictures to file. Then, crop and snip to get the best pictures of pets by eliminating some of the backgrounds. Make images around 2” to 3” in size.
At the top of the file, I added some firefighters clip art so that the rescue workers know that I did this to help them.
Under the pictures, use a text box to write brief information about the pets like the name, a description, and kind or breed of pets.
When you have the worksheet the way you want it, print it on a sheet of paper.
I put a piece of clear contact paper on the back of it with a border about ½” wider so that it adhered to the window. Other options are to laminate or place in a sheet protector and then tape to the window.
Clean a window inside the house facing the street, and then tape pictures to the window with the pictures facing outside.
Unless the decal is vinyl, it will not hold up very long outside.
