Fire Department to Receive Animal Oxygen Masks from the Wisconsin Humane Society
MILWAUKEE — Assistant Fire Chief Mark A. Sain will be blazing into the Wisconsin Humane Society on Tuesday to pick up some very important lifesaving equipment. Last month, WHS launched a hugely successful fundraising campaign to outfit Milwaukee County Firehouses with oxygen masks for companion animals. This equipment can help dogs, cats and small animals recover from severe smoke inhalation and possibly prevent death.
On behalf of the Milwaukee Fire Department, Assistant Chief Sain will be receiving 50 oxygen masks – valued at $2,750 – to distribute to all firehouses in the City of Milwaukee. Assistant Chief Sain intends to bring a big rig, too!
