Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue received a special donation that will help firefighters continue to take care of your four legged family members in the event of a fire.
A big thank you to Invisible Fence Brand, Peninsulas for donating 30 pet oxygen masks to our department!
In September 2017, CKFR crews rescued three animals from a structure fire at a local apartment building. A dog, a kitten, and a snake were all removed by firefighters and the kitten, named Velcro, was placed on oxygen using a mask specifically designed for pets.
We have those masks on our rigs thanks to the generosity of Invisible Fence Brand Peninsulas. They were generous enough to make another donation so that we may continue to care for Central Kitsap pets.
This donation is just a small part of Invisible Fence® Brand’s Project Breathe™ program, which was established with the goal of equipping every fire station in America and Canada with pet oxygen masks. These masks allow firefighters to give oxygen to pets who are suffering from smoke inhalation when they are rescued from fires and often save pets’ lives.
- The visit at Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue’s Station 51 included dachshunds Sophie and Bandit and German Shepard Chevy. Sophie and Bandit both demonstrated how a pet oxygen mask is specifically designed to fit them.
