Fire Stations in Yakima County Receive Oxygen Masks For Animals

YAKIMA, Wash.- Good news for pet owners in the Yakima Valley. It's called Project Chico, and Lance Tormey, with our newspartner Newstalk 1280, has been the organizer of the project. The project goal is to distribute oxygen masks made especially for animals, to fire stations all over the Yakima Valley.

The masks are made of universal tubing so firefighters can hook them right into their oxygen tanks. Tormey says, with the help of the Yakima Valley Pet Rescue and generous donations from the community, the project is booming. In the last three to four months, over 55 masks have been handed out to fire stations up and down the valley.

For more information on the pet oxygen masks and how you can get involved, contact Lance Tormey at (509) 972-3484.
