Jefferson Parish Fire Dept Receives Donated Oxygen Masks for Pets

President Michael S. Yenni is pleased to announce the Jefferson Parish East Bank Consolidated Fire Department (JPEBCFD) is the proud recipient of protective oxygen masks for pets thanks to a Baton Rouge company. Firefighter Brad Esteves saw a need and through the proper channels made contact with the Invisible Fence Company who donated the pet oxygen masks through the “Project Breathe Program.”

President Yenni stated, “We have some of the best and well-trained firefighters in the state and this provides us with another level of savings lives. Pets are just like family members to many of us so keeping them safe is a major responsibility. I am grateful to Chief David Tibbetts, the JPFD staff, and first responders that keep our Parish safe every day.”

Thanks to this donation, the JPEBCFD now has the ability to give any pets rescued the proper care at the scene of an incident. To learn more about the program, please visit The Invisible Fence Company “Project Breathe Program” at
