Chichester Fire Rescue Receives Donation Of Life-Saving Oxygen Masks For Pets

First responders use one of the specially designed pet oxygen masks to resuscitate a family dog.


Each kit includes masks in three sizes to fit a wide range of family pets.


Chichester Fire Rescue has received a donation of specially designed pet oxygen masks from at-home pet services provider Canine Company. The masks, which were requested by Lt. Kris Cole, will make it possible for first responders to deliver oxygen to family pets in need on the scene of house fires and other emergencies.


Pets are at special risk during a home fire because they are unable to leave the house without help. An estimated 40,000 die from smoke inhalation across the U.S. each year. The cone-shaped masks are designed for a pet’s snout, which human masks don’t fit. Each set includes masks in three sizes to fit pets from small mammals to giant breed dogs.


“Our company was founded by a family of pet lovers and our mission is to help other families keep their pets healthy, safe and happy,” said Renee Coughlin of Canine Company.  “Our goal is to get these in to the hands of first responders wherever our clients live so they are ready to handle an emergency involving family pets.”


Last year, Canine Company donated more than 170 mask kits to fire departments and first aid squads in 60 communities across New England states, including four in New Hampshire.


To ensure rescuers know there are pets in a home, Canine Company is offering free “Pets Inside” decals to local pet parents.  Decals are available from the fire department or by completing the Request a Decal form on the company’s website.


Canine Company provides at-home pet care products and services including the Invisible Fence® brand pet containment systems and Manners obedience training to pet parents across New Jersey, New York and New England.  Through its Canine Love campaign, the company supports pet rescue and provides pet oxygen masks to first responders.
