Pet Oxygen Masks
The Invisible Fence Brand of Greater Dallas has made a donation to Wylie Fire Rescue of five pet oxygen kits. The kits are on each Quint and both ambulances, which enables us to assist our sister cities' communities should the need arise through mutual aid. These kits are quite expensive and are a huge asset to WFR, the citizens of Wylie and the surrounding areas. For more information about Project Breathe

A heartfelt thanks to The Invisible Fence Brand from Wylie Fire Rescue for your generous donation and thinking of our four-legged citizens of Wylie, Texas. We hope we never have to use them but thanks to you, we are prepared! Note: Had we not received a newsletter from Comfort Critters
we would not have been aware of Project Breathe. Please take time to review Comfort Critters' website, as well, to see their work to support our animal community.
Severe Weather Awareness
In Texas, our weather is unpredictable. What we can predict is that storms can arise in the blink of an eye. Remember that spring and fall storms can bring about tornadoes, hail, severe winds and flooding. Check out the NOAA website
for important information about many types of severe weather and how you can best prepare yourself and your family.
With summer fun come responsibilities and some dangers. Please be sure to keep yourself and your family safe. Respect the sun and keep your family protected from the heat, especially small children, the elderly, and pets. Check out WFR's safety education page for additional links regarding summertime safety.

Homeland Security Begins with Hometown Security
If you see something suspicious taking place, report that behavior or activity to local law enforcement or, in the case of emergency, call 9-1-1. Factors such as race, ethnicity, national origin, or religious affiliation alone are not suspicious. For that reason, the public should report only suspicious behavior and situations (e.g., an unattended backpack in a public place or someone trying to break into a restricted area) rather than beliefs, thoughts, ideas, expressions, associations, or speech unrelated to terrorism or other criminal activity. Only reports that document behavior reasonably indicative of criminal activity related to terrorism will be shared with federal partners.
