CALEDONIA, Mich. — After reading a similar story about the Caledonia Fire Department, the Alto Girl Scouts decided to raise money to purchase a pet oxygen mask for Alto.
Their group leader Eva Carey said the girls raised the money in a variety of ways, including selling eggs, returning pop cans and doing chores around the house.
The girls visited the Alto Fire Department in mid-January. Fire chief Phil Dougherty explained to the girls that human life is top priority but, the fire department will also take steps to save the lives of family pets and that the pet oxygen mask will be good to have available if there is a need.
Dougherty also gave the girls a tour of the department and demonstrated some tools they use. He also provided fire safety tips for the girls and their families.
