KINGSTON – New life-saving equipment was handed out to some area fire departments Saturday by members of a Scout troop, but it was no run-of-the-mill troop that raised the money for the project, and it wasn’t ordinary oxygen masks that were distributed.
Members of Wyoming Valley Dog Squad Troop 221 of Dog Scouts of America were at the Kingston Fire Department to distribute pet oxygen masks.
Troop leader Phyllis Sinavage said the troop raised close to $4,000 to purchase 38 oxygen mask kits, at $68 each, for area departments that requested them, and she expects more Luzerne County departments will ask for a kit when word about their availability gets out.
