As an animal safety specialist, I can heartily concur. We can teach responders how to safely and efficiently rescue an animal (especially large animals), but first they need to be given a "fighting chance", especially where fire is involved. Large animal people are tradition-bound and will not spend the money to install sprinker systems. Consequently, their multi-thousand dollar animals die in preventable fires. Factory farms are even worse, where the owners need only walk away and the insurance will pay to set them up again. Sprinkler systems save lives.
