The Belmont Fire Department has received a donation of pet oxygen masks that will be carried on both fire engines stationed in the city.

Invisible Fence Brand, makers of the Invisible Fence electronic dog containment system, donated two sets of pet oxygen masks to the Belmont Fire Department as part of their Project Breath. Each kit includes a small, medium and large mask and the Belmont Fire Department received one kit for each station.

The masks allow firefighters to give oxygen to pets who are suffering from smoke inhalation when they are rescued from fires.

The donation was the result of work done by Belmont Firefighter Brent Nolan, who learned about Project Breath and contacted Invisible Fence. The company has set up a website, www.invisiblefence.com/O2, where people or companies can support the effort.
