Station 26 recently received a donation of pet oxygen masks from the Canine Company's Project Breathe program. Each of our apparatus as well as Car 26 and Car 26B have been equipped with the kits. Each kit contains 3 sizes of masks as well as necessary O2 tubing. Project Breathe™ is a pet oxygen mask donation program that allows local fire departments to access oxygen mask kits to first responders. Various sources estimate that up to 150,000 pets die each year in fires, most succumbing to smoke inhalation. In most states, emergency responders are not equipped to deal with the crisis because they lack specially designed pet oxygen masks.
