Pets to Breathe Easier in Park Forest

Park Forest, IL–(ENEWSPF)– The Park Forest Fire Department recently received a donation that will help prevent pets from falling victim to smoke inhalation due to fire.

Invisible Fence of Chicagoland donated oxygen recovery masks for pets to the Park Forest Fire Department, and conducted equipment training sessions and demonstrations with the department. One recovery kit was donated to the station and contains three pet oxygen masks in small, medium and large sizes.

“We hope that by donating oxygen mask kits that we will contribute to saving more pets and hopefully protect pet owners that may risk their own life to save a pet in a fire,” said Jack Miltz, owner, Invisible Fence of Chicagoland.

It is estimated that in 2006, more than 40,000 pets died in fires; most succumbed to smoke inhalation. In most states, emergency responders are unequipped to deal with the crisis. The donation of these specially designed and potentially lifesaving animal oxygen mask sets will enable Park Forest Rescue Squads to efficiently administer oxygen to a stricken animal.

“We want to thank Invisible Fence for their generosity and believe that these kits will help us save more pets; we can all recall a fire from the past where these masks would have helped save a pet,” said Deputy Chief Bruce Ziegle.

For more information about the Invisible Fence® Brand animal recovery mask donation program, please contact Kristin Rogers, Donation Coordinator, at 440-729-1780 x126 or [email protected].
