Losing a pet in a house fire can be a devastating experience. As most pet owners leave their furry companions home alone when they go to work, pets are left to fend for themselves in the event of a house fire. Although installing 'rescue alert stickers' may seem sufficient to some, the pets life is not assured. Unlike humans looking to run out during fires, pets instinctively look for a hiding place to protect them from the fire.
When first responders arrive at the scene, the alert sticker will them identify a residence with pets. Please keep in mind that when that pet is extricated from the burning structure that pet will have inhaled toxic amounts of smoke, toxic fumes (from burning rugs, carpets, household chemicals, plastic, etc) and will suffer from Smoke Inhalation. First responders will need to provide pure oxygen on the scene before transport to that pet in order for it to have a change at recovery. Smoke inhalation kills people and pets. We all have lungs!
So get your Alert Sticker but remember to provide your first responders with this additional tool for their toolbox, namely the Pet Oxygen Mask Kits. That will truly make a difference in your pets chances at recovery.
Pet Oxygen Masks can resuscitate animals suffering from smoke inhalation. They can be used on dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, even birds and they are the perfect solution for emergency responders. We encourage you to support your local Fire/EMS and Police Departments with donations to help them acquire such necessary equipment.
