Tailor-made cat and dog oxygen mask revives cat after house fire — 2 Comments

  1. I bet that the UK firefighting service would carry these if they were available. I’ve seen many reports in the UK of Firefighters using human oxygen masks (and in one case a tent made on site out of a cagoule) on pets rescued from fires. Firefighters always seem to be compassionate, especially towards animals in distress.

    I wonder if the New Orleans crew would be happy to spread the word globally to other Firefighters?

  2. This is a lovely news story.

    It says a lot for the kindness of the people at the New Orleans Fire Department. Even with their busy, dangerous jobs, they still made the time to invent something especially to help save animal lives.

    If these oxgyen helmets are effective, then it would be great to see the design adopted by more fire crews worldwide.
