'Friends' donate pet oxygen masks to Bay Village firefighters
Friends of the Bay Village Kennel purchased specialized pet oxygen masks and donated them to the Bay Village Fire Department on March 25.
Chief Lyons graciously accepted the brand new and updated accessories, which are now on a fire truck.
"We hope we never have to use them, but just like humans, pets can be overcome by smoke and other particulates in a fire. These are custom made to fit the snout of an animal and give them the correct flow of oxygen similar to what a human might need. The Bay Village Fire Department is extremely appreciative of this donation."
