Oxygen masks for pets saved from fires
Through Project Breathe, Oconee County fire departments are being equipped with oxygen masks for pets involved in fires. The masks are being donated by Invisible Fence Brand, an organization in support of causes to save pets’ lives. A representative will present the oxygen mask kits during a reception tomorrow at the Westminster Fire Department. According to an announcement from Oconee Emergency Services, up to 150 thousand pets die each year in fire. Most succumb to smoke inhalation.
