Fire Department receives new pet masks

Chief Smith and Firefighter H. Alderson with Darla

The Danville Fire Department recognizes that pets are beloved members of families and households within our communities and deserve the best care possible when a fire occurs. Thanks to the Project Breathe™ Program through the Invisible Fence Company, the Fire Department is now equipped with updated Pet Oxygen Rescue Mask Kits. Project Breathe™ is a pet oxygen mask donation program designed to provide oxygen mask kits to fire departments and other first responders. Each kit includes a small, medium, and large mask; fire departments are eligible to receive one kit per station.

Mask kits will be placed on all fire department apparatus and will replace aging masks that the department received from the same program approximately 10-years ago. This project was spearheaded by firefighter Hillary Alderson.

The mission of the Danville Fire Department is to reduce the risk to life and property through professional response and community engagement. Each year, nearly 40,000 pets perish in house fires. An additional 500,000 pets suffer injury because from fires. Most commonly, those injuries and fatalities stem from smoke inhalation.
