ALL deserve a HIGH FIVE and many kudo's! They have banned together and yesterday donated oxygen masks and rebreathers to ALL Fire Rescues stations and Emergency response teams working through Fire Stations...40 plus in the the Greater Orlando area alone. The kits come in 4 sizes to fit most pets.
After a cold Florida winter with many house fires, these rescues teams used human masks to revive many pets overcome by smoke, the mask fit is rough, so this group took it upon themselves to do something about it.
All county & city officials give this their blessing.
Now emt's & fire rescue can feel free to treat the fourlegged family members as well. The same group of vet's are offering emergency medical treatment also.

Life is good.
