Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire District Receives Donation of Pet Oxygen Masks
Sisters-Camp Sherman firefighter/paramedics could have used the kit last summer when a chinchilla was injured during a house fire in the Crossroads Subdivision.
Invisible Fence of Central Oregon made a potentially life-saving donation to the Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire District Tuesday morning. Judy Duncan (owner) provided the District six oxygen masks, of varying sizes, designed to be used on pets that are injured in a fire. The oxygen masks are designed to fit over the pet’s mouth and nose and deliver 100% oxygen to the injured animal. The masks will work on any type of animal as long as their nose and mouth will fit into the mask.
Sisters-Camp Sherman firefighter/paramedics could have used the kit last summer when a chinchilla was injured during a house fire in the Crossroads Subdivision. Firefighters used an adult oxygen mask to provide supplemental oxygen to the frightened animal who was suffering from smoke inhalation. Other than people, animals are the number one concern of residents who have experienced a house fire.
