Thursday, November 21, 2013 • The Carlisle Citizen • Page Five Animal Rescue Oxygen Kits Donated to Carlisle Fire Department Fire officials in Carlisle want to make sure your pets are taken care of in fire emergencies. The Carlisle Fire Departments received a donation of animal rescue oxygen kits from the Avondale Veterinary Complex. The donation was made possible by Dr. Dennis Woodruff and his family• Many times, oxygen from a mask designed for humans do not work well on animals. Having the right oxygen masks for an animal can be the different between life and death for an animal. Human masks do not fit the muzzles of animals well, making it hard to effectively deliver oxygen to them. Human life comes first when firefighters go into a house that's on fire. But, when they can rescue an animal, it is important to have the right equipment immediately. A lot of these pets are like a family member and it is important to the Carlisle Fire staff and Avondale Veterinary staff to have the equipment necessary to save a family member's pet. The mask, which has a rubber ring on the inside, fit snugly over the animal's snout. A small plastic tube on the mask connects to an oxygen tank. This can provide better treatment to an animal who has been rescued. More than 40,000 pets died in home fires last year in the U.S. Private Pesticide Applicator Training and Recertification In order to qualify for recertification by training, pri- vate applicators must attend a private continuing instruc- tional course• Iowa State University Extension and Out- reach ~ Warren County will be presenting the course at the Farm Bureau on Friday, December 13th, beginning at 9:30 am, and again on Thursday, February 6th, begin- ning at 1:30 pm.

Congressman Tom Latham thanked 23 Iowa veterans including Will- iam Schooler of Carlisle - for documenting their war- time memories at the fifth annual Veterans History Project Nov. 8 at AIB Col- lege of Business• "There are a lot of people who glorify war, and you are the folks who know that it is not glorious - and it's really horrible at times•" Latham told the veterans• "It is absolutely critical that the next generation and generations after that know exactly what did hap- pen - the real stories that you lived and the service that you gave to our great country." The Veterans History Project was created by the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., to collect and archive the personal recollections of U.S. war- time veterans of any past or current conflicts so their stories can be told to future generations. At AIB, volunteer inter- viewers question veterans while volunteer court re- porters write their re- sponses on steno machines. Volunteer videographers also record the interviews. The court reporters are from the Iowa Court Re- porters Association, and they partner with the Na- tional Court Reporters As- sociation and Foundation for the Veterans History Project. The responses will be archived at the Iowa Gold Star Military Museum at Camp Dodge in Johnston and the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. Par- ticipating veterans will re- ceive DVDs and tran- scribed copies of the inter- view. Volunteers at AIB's Vet- erans History Project have now documented more than 130 veterans' stories. This year, veterans from World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam shared their experiences. Bob Hollliday, chairman of the board of the Iowa Gold Star Military Mu- seum in Johnston, told the veterans, "There are a lot of people in the world who are jealous of us, and it all boils-down to one word: freedom• Our veterans have always preserved those freedoms for us. We continue to have those free- doms thanks to people like you." Iowa American Legion Department Adjutant John Derner awarded scholar- ships from the group to two AIB students, Cortez Loera of Sioux City and Rachael Roeder of Ankeny. "Every generation of this nation's history has had people willing to step for- ward and defend our coun- try, defend our principles and, most of all, defend our liberties and freedoms," Derner said. "That continu- ity of service is something we all need to recognize." For more information about the entire Veterans History Project, go to www.loc.ov/vets.
