Meet Casey: A Fire Dog

From AKC CGC Evaluator, Amy Linder

I’d like to introduce you to Casey. Casey is not an accelerant detection dog, but is a Fire Dog with Eugene Springfield Fire and the Oregon Fire Service Honor Guard.

caseyHe goes into classrooms and teaches crawl low under smoke, testing a smoke alarm, dialing 9-1-1, stop, drop and roll and what gear firefighters wear. He is a Project Canine certified therapy dog and a Hope ACR certified crisis response dog.

Casey combines all these skills to provide support to families and coworkers of fallen firefighters both in Oregon and Nationally. As I type this, we are sitting in a DC area airport waiting to fly home the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial weekend in Emmitsburg, Maryland (see photo).
