Queen Creek’s four-legged friends will be safer with the recent donation of a FIDO BAG from the San Tan Animal Hospital, according to a town news release.

Purchased from the Fetch Foundation and donated to the Queen Creek Fire and Medical Department, the bag includes important lifesaving equipment specially designed for pets.

“At the San Tan Animal Hospital, we’re committed to the health and safety of pets in the community,” said Dr. Scott Darger, founder and director of the San Tan Animal Hospital, in the news release. “We’re honored to provide a FIDO BAG to the Fire Department to help provide emergency services for animals in distress.”

The FIDO BAG includes a specialized breathing apparatus to administer oxygen in a fire emergency, and will be utilized on engine 413.

“Thanks to the generous donation by Dr. Darger and his staff, all of our fire engines are equipped with this lifesaving device,” stated Queen Creek Fire and Medical Department Chief Ron Knight. “Once our firefighters get the family out of danger, we now have the equipment necessary to render aid to our four-legged friends.”

The Queen Creek 4-H Dog Project donated two FIDO BAGS in 2014 for engines 411 and 412.
