A breath of fresh air for pets as oxygen masks rolled out across stations
13 September 2017
As a nation of pet lovers, we’re ‘wagging our tails’ for pet oxygen masks.
Following the successful introduction of pet oxygen masks at Hornsea and Beverley Fire Stations, Humberside Fire and Rescue Service (HFRS) is delighted to have received a further donation of eight pet oxygen mask kits, which have been rolled out to key stations within the HFRS area and to our K9 Fire Investigation Dog team.
These kits have been kindly donated by the charity Smokey Paws, who have received funding from Peel Veterinary Clinics based in Beverley and Hornsea as well as from local canine first aid trainers Rhodes 2 Safety.
The charity Smokey Paws is still receiving donations which will hopefully allow for a pet oxygen mask kit in every fire station.
