Project Breathe benefits Omaha-area first responders, pets

By on May 26, 2016

In a recent WOWT-6 News story, the Omaha NBC affiliate shared the story of Project Breath, a nationwide campaign that puts pet oxygen masks in the hands of first responders. Invisible Fence of the Heartland donated four pet oxygen masks to the Papillion Fire Department and plans to give more soon.

Brett Fickler of Invisible Fence of the Heartland said in the WOWT article that 40,000 pets died last year from smoke inhalation. “If we can save one of those pets, it’s worth it.” When we spoke with him, he indicated that “pets are family” and providing firefighters with the means to save every one of our family members is necessary.

On June 1 at 10 a.m., Invisible Fence of the Heartland will make its next Project Breathe® pet oxygen masks donation to the Bennington Fire Department.
