Pet Oxygen Mask Donation Program
Tuesday, February 10, 2015
Justin Ward from Invisible Fence Brand of Delmarva presented the Millsboro Fire Company with an oxygen mask kit as part of that organizations Pet Oxygen Mask Donation Program at our February company meeting. Although the number of pets that perish in fires is not an official statistic kept by the U.S. Fire Administration, industry web sites and sources have cited that an estimated 40,000 to 150,000 pets die each year in fires, most succumbing to smoke inhalation. Invisible Fence has set a goal to ensure that every fire department and rescue unit is equipped with these life-saving pet oxygen masks, and to date has issued more that 10,000 of the units to fire stations throughout the U.S. and Canada thru their Project Breath donation program. We thank Invisible Fence Brand for their donation and their commitment to this project.
