New Haven Fire Department to Introduce Animal Respirators

The New Haven Fire Department will now provide animal respirators as a part of their life-saving fire equipment kits.

Like the human respirators, these specialized respirators can save the lives of pets that suffer from smoke or heat inhalation.

Specially designed to fit over the snout of dogs, cats, and other similar animals, the masks will further the New Haven Fire Department’s aim to save as many lives as possible -- be it human or pet, according to the mayor's office.

The New Haven Fire Department recently received its first shipment and will soon make the masks available in firehouses across the city.
