Pet Oxygen Mask Special For National Fire Safety Month 2009

In Uncategorized on October 9, 2009 at 6:21 PM
October is many things but in the safety world October is also National Fire Safety Month.
We all want to be safe and keep our pets safe but what does that entail in October?
House fire occur, unfortunately too often. By now most people have heard of and own Alert Stickers to let the fire department know to rescue their pets in case of a residential Fire. Displaying these stickers is awesome however not enough. Once the firefighters get the pets out of the burning structure that will – just like us – have suffered from smoke inhalation. Extrication alone does not solve the problem. They need help respiratory assistance on scene! There is no question humans need it. Animals with lungs need it to!
“The number one cause of death related to fires is smoke inhalation. An estimated 50%-80% of fire deaths are the result of smoke inhalation injuries rather than burns. Smoke inhalation occurs when you breathe in the products of combustion during a fire. Combustion results from the rapid breakdown of a substance by heat (more commonly called burning). Smoke is a mixture of heated particles and gases. It is impossible to predict the exact composition of smoke produced by a fire. The products being burned, the temperature of the fire, and the amount of oxygen available to the fire all make a difference in the type of smoke produced.”

Did you know that more smoke inhalation kills more than 40,000 pets per year?
The dedication of firefighters is tremendously appreciated by all. Wag’N wants to make sure that their efforts are not met in vain. Pets rescued from fire need help. First responders nationwide need to have the right tools in their toolbox to save the pets they just risked their lives for. Pet Oxygen Masks are the tools that will accomplish that. 

Wag’N Helps First Responders Year Round. But October needs a special wag. Temperatures go down, heaters are turned on & fire places come to life (in both cases most of us forget to have a chimneys cleaned and heaters serviced); deck fire places are fired up; we forget all about placing protective shields by the fire place; students return to school & college; Halloween and its candles and extra electrical equipment spark trouble; leaves get dry and outdoor fire risk increases.
