Pet Oxygen Masks Donated to Middleton Fire Department
MIDDLETON, Wis. (WTMV) -- Middleton Fire Department is now equipped to have a better chance of saving pets during emergencies.
Invisible Fence of Southern Wisconsin donated pet oxygen masks to the department and local vets with the Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Association taught fire fighters how to use the equipment. The masks help first responders get oxygen to pets suffering smoke inhalation during fires.
"The donation of the oxygen masks to us will change how we're able to operate because we now have special devices mean for cats and dogs and not trying to use a mask used for a human to match up with an animal," said Middleton Fire Department Battalion Chief Brad Subera.
Invisible Fence said it has donated more than 12 thousand pet oxygen masks to fire stations across the US and Canada, even saving two dogs after a fire in October 2016 in Oregon.
