“Thank you to Invisible Fence for its generous pet oxygen mask donation to our Seminole County Fire Department,” said Fire Chief Otto Drozd III. “Since 2004, the Seminole County Fire Department has been utilizing these specialty masks on our first response units. We know that pets are important family members and we want to ensure that they survive fires.”
 
“The Project Breathe™ Program goal is simple,” said Ed Hoyt, Director of Invisible Fence. “We want to ensure that every fire department and rescue unit across the U.S. and Canada are equipped with life-saving pet oxygen masks.”
