Pet Oxygen Masks Donated to Esquimalt Fire Rescue

July 23, 2015

Three sets of pet oxygen masks have been donated to Esquimalt Fire Rescue by Bosley’s Pet Food Plus. The masks are used to resuscitate animals overcome by smoke at fire scenes and will be carried in Esquimalt emergency vehicles.
“Thank you to Bosley’s for its generous donation to Esquimalt Fire Rescue,” said Fire Chief Chris Jancowski. “These devices can save the lives of cherished pets caught in a house fire.”
The masks quickly reduce carbon monoxide levels in the bloodstream and give pets a better chance of surviving smoke inhalation. They come in different sizes to fit dogs, cats and other household pets.
