Over the past few years, Prohaska has given nearly a hundred of the masks to fire departments. While he has been a firefighter for awhile, Prohaska has yet to use the device. But, he was aware of cats being saved because of the masks.

The devices have been around for a few years, but Hawley received their own after Angel Hanrahan who is a second lieutenant with the Hawley Fire Company and works at the Wallenpaupack Veterinary Clinic, learned of the resource.

In December alone, Prohaska gave 12 devices to fire departments and as of the March presentation, he had already given four away. One is all that a department needs, however, since they can be reused. The masks, Prohaska said is something every fire department should have.
