Photo of the Week: Phoenix medic uses 'FIDO' bag to resuscitate dog

Phoenix Paramedic Jake McDaniel used an oxygen mask specifically made for pets to revive the unconscious pup after a fire


Calling all EMS photographers! EMS1 wants to see pictures of you in action or training. Submit a photo — it could be selected as our Photo of the Week! Be sure to include your name, department information and some background on the photo.

This week's Photo of the Week comes from the Phoenix Fire Department, showing how a special piece of equipment went to good use after a fire in the city. 

Phoenix Paramedic Jake McDaniel reached into a "FIDO" bag, a kit that contains first aid equipment specifically made for pets, and used a dog-sized mask to resuscitate a furry family member who fell unconscious during the blaze. 

Officials say the pup is now recovering and that no one else was injured in the fire.
