Mount Tabor Fire Department Receives Donation of Pet Oxygen Masks

Local pet parents offered free “pets inside” decals to signal there are pets in the home

PARSIPPANY — The Mount Tabor Volunteer Fire Department has received a donation of three sets of specially designed pet oxygen mask kits from at-home pet services provider Canine Company.  One kit is being deployed to each of the department’s three stations, so firefighters can deliver oxygen to pets in need on the scene of house fires and other emergencies.

“We cover one-third of the Township of Parsippany, which means a lot of people and a ton of pets,” said Chief Bryan Crawford. “Our service to protect life and property doesn’t just stop at humans. Most pets are treated like family and a loss can be devastating. This oxygen mask kit gives firefighters an opportunity to save our four-legged friends .”

Family pets are at special risk of smoke inhalation during a home fire because they are unable to leave the house without help.  The cone-shaped pet masks are designed for a pet’s snout, which human masks do not fit. Each donated set includes masks in three sizes to fit a wide range of pets – from small mammals to giant breed dogs.

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, by clicking here.

Canine Company is on a mission to get the pet oxygen masks into the hands of first responders in all the communities where its clients live. Last year, Canine Company donated more than 170 mask kits to fire departments and first aid squads in 60 communities across New Jersey, New York and the New England states.

 “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,” she added. 

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. For information click here or call (800) 818-3647.
