Arkansas Fallen Firefighters' Memorial Ground Breaking Ceremony

Today I went with Firefighter Dayna to the ground-breaking for the Arkansas Fallen Firefighters' MemorialI was very honored to be a part of this very special day.

A drawing of what the memorial will look like.

In the Safety Mobile and ready to go! Let's go, Mom!

Safety Mobile all washed and ready to go to Little Rock.

It was my first time to sit in the back seat. Mom
 let me put my head on her shoulder. So comfy!

I enjoyed seeing all the fire trucks! This one
was from the Little Rock Fire Department.

Thanks to the Little Rock Color Guard for
letting me pose with them for a picture!

Arkansas is the state where I live. We are very
proud of our firefighters and the work they
do to help keep people and property safe.
Watching people at the groundbreaking ceremony. I was
very honored when three people asked me to help them.
It was very cold and rainy, but you know what?
No one complained, not even me. It was a
 day everyone wouldn't have missed for anything.
Posing with Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel.
Mr. McDaniel is a huge supporter of the fire
service, and even helped Firefighter Dayna and the
firefighters in Arkansas help ban novelty lighters in the state.
These are my new friends, Mr. and Mrs. Brooks Jackson.
I loved meeting them and hanging out with them
during the ceremony. Mr. Jackson took me with
him when he went up to help break ground.

Watching the ceremony.
I was so honored when KTHV's Tom Brannon
asked me to help him when it was his time
to help break ground. Mr. Jackson was
so nice to go up there with me!

Many people got to help during the ground-breaking
ceremony. It has taken so many people working
many hours to help make the Arkansas Fallen
Firefighters' Memorial a reality. The memorial
will be dedicated on October 26th and I will be there!
This is Johnny Deep. Johnny worked really
hard to help make the memorial a reality!
I gave him kisses for working so hard!
I loved listening to the Pipes and Drums!

You can see more pictures of the ceremony on the KTHV website and watch the KTHV video HERE. Look close for a white dog with black spots. : )

Until next time, stay safe! And, remember: FIRE SAFETY ROCKS!
