Pillow Pets for Pet Oxygen Masks

USFRA Pet Oxygen Mask Program

Pet oxygen masks are oxygen masks specifically designed coned shaped to fit the muzzles and snouts of dogs, cats and other household pets. They have a large rubber seal at the base of each mask allowing them a snug fit on any size household pet while keeping the jowls closed. This is an important feature of Pet CPR. In pet CPR we close the mouth and deliver breathes directly into the nostrils, the pet oxygen masks simulate that action. Offering a continuous accurately directed flow of health oxygen. Making recovery much more efficient and effect.

100% of the funds generated from the Pillow Pets will go towards Pet Oxygen Mask Program!

It Could Be You

Summer heat can bring wildfires. If you live in an area where they are common, there are steps you can take to minimize damage.

The best thing you can do is use fire resistant building materials. If this isn't possible, be sure to remove flammable materials, such as leaves, from your roof and store gasoline away from occupied buildings.

I think Frye should go into Wildland FF
It would be like save the Gators instead of save the whales.

But then I'm from Alabama and the tide washed up the Gators on shore last year.

Nice group half-pint. So are you thinking about going into Wildland FF?

I'm going to have to agree with Andy, from the reports I receive it is going to be a nasty summer. I wish I was home for it.

Keep up the great work firefighter!
Comment by LT. Andrew Poole on July 3, 2010 at 6:51pm
Great group Chief. We definitely needs something like this. It's going to be a nasty, dry summer.

Marines become instant firefighters
On weekend training with a USMC-R Engineering group we were operating in a field of dead high grass in March with 40 mi/hr winds.
A Sargent accidently set off a trip flare and it was instant wildfire. I immediately had Uncle Sam's Misguided Chillen grab their E tools with 2/3 of them bumping the fire toward a lake and a dirt road with the last third on the road creating a firebreak.

Meanwhile the active duty was clinging on a hill trying to hold on cause they were laughing so hard.


A few NCOs were going to be tough and got infront of the flames. I took them to the ER for Smoke injestion in the brain later after the fire was out.

The local Vol FD pulled up took one look at the charred landscape ( We stopped it at the road ) and laughed. They did not want to fight it since the area was abandoned strip mines and very rough.

One Marine Quipped "This was harder than Paris Island"
