Loveland Ski Area’s dog mascot “Parker” tested them out on Thursday.

“We have the equipment to respond to humans (from accidents, 9-1-1 calls, etc.), but we didn’t have the ability to help someone’s pet if it really needed it,” said Ed Smith, Clear Creek EMS Captain.

The kits come with a small/medium/large oxygen plastic masks.
