Madelia Fire Department receives pet oxygen mask kits
MADELIA — First Responders with the Madelia Fire Department are now some of the best-equipped in the nation to save a pet’s life. That’s because Invisible Fence Brand Southern Minnesota has donated five pet oxygen mask kits to the department.
St. James Veterinary Clinic provided additional pet saving tips to the group such as pet first aid and CPR.
This donation is a part of Invisible Fence® Brand’s Project Breathe™ program, which was established with the goal of equipping every fire station in America and Canada with pet oxygen masks. These masks allow firefighters and EMS staff to give oxygen to pets who are suffering from smoke inhalation when they are rescued from fires and often save pets’ lives.
Invisible Fence® Brand has donated a total of more than 12,400 pet oxygen masks to fire stations all over the U.S. and Canada throughout the life of the program.
