The Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District (TMFPD) recently received a donation of 41 pet oxygen mask kits from the Reno Hospital for Cats to be utilized in rescue operations at the District’s career and volunteer fire stations.

Each kit comes with small, medium and large masks. Each mask comes with air tubing that can be hooked up to oxygen bottles inside the fire equipment. The kits are packed in a red, canvas bag with full instructions. The masks are used on pets that have suffered from smoke inhalation and pets that need to be resuscitated after losing consciousness from exposure to the dangerous, toxic fumes.
