June 2, 2009



Rescue squads at the Mount Oliver Fire Department are receiving animal rescue oxygen masks through a donation from Invisible Fence of Western Pennsylvania.

First responders will be equipped with the masks after a training session on Wednesday, June 3, at the fire hall.

According to Captain Andy Marsh, the department currently has 15 members who are certified in animal CPR and that they have already used their new training on several occasions. The donation of these specially designed animal oxygen mask sets will enable first responders to efficiently administer oxygen to a stricken animal.

The training session will begin at 6 p.m. on June 3 at 120 Brownsville Road.
