April 2014 – While watching the news, a story about pet oxygen masks being donated to Riviera Beach Fire dept. was being aired.
I wondered, do our local emergency vehicles have those on board? After making several calls, I was put in touch with Chief Arena. He advised me No ! only 2 units, and they were out of date. ! I requested and received a list of every emergency first responder vehicle in the acreage / Loxahatchee area and through a local Facebookk group I was a part of, I created a fund. The generous people in our community donated enough money for us to purchase a mask kit for EVERY emergency vehicle and the back up stations that assist us . A very proud accomplishment , as they have already saved several precious lives. You can see the WPTV” News story link below
