Read all about the Fire Safety Dogs on Fire Engineering Magazine's Firelife.com!

The Fire Safety Dog's recent post on "Sparkles' Kids Zone" on Firelife.com!

Even though it is early in the New Year, we have been very busy! 

One of our very favorite things we like to do is to host Fire Engineering Talk Radio with Firefighter Dayna. We did a firelife.com segment recently and it was extra, extra special! Our show went to the dogs! BOL (Barking out loud). Tango the Fire Safety Dog and Siren the Fire Safety Dog, along with their friends, some of the most famous canines and their pet parents in the United States, spent a fun two and a half hour evening on the program! Each of the dog’s pet parents shared the incredible work that each of their dogs do and even shared their favorite safety tips! We had so much fun!

Our special guests included Jake the Fire Dog, Emma Zen the Biker Dog and Team Leader of O2, Rainbow Diamond, Spokes Dog for Diamond Dachshund Rescue, the famous Surf Dog Ricochet, Mountain Doo the Search and Rescue Puppy, and Finnagus Sage, the man hunting Bloodhound!

Mountain Doo

In our last column, we introduced you to our little buddy, Mountain Doo (known and “Doo” to his friends). Doo is an eighteen week old yellow Labrador retriever and is learning how to find people that may be lost and hurt. He is also learning to find people 
who might have fallen in the lake or fell from
a boat! Doo’s dad, Rob, was trapped in the Joplin tornado in May 2011. Now, Rob and Doo are going to be helping others that may be trapped!

We are excited that Doo has his own Facebook page!  Please join Doo's page, show the love, and tell him that the Fire Safety Dogs sent you!

We’d like to give a big shout out to our friends at PetSmart. They are helping us share our daily fire safety tips by tweeting! 

Here’s one of the fire safety tips that we shared recently:

Since many of you may live where there is snow this winter, remind the grown-ups that you live with to make sure that the hydrants are clear of snow around them in case the fire department needs to come!

It is hard to believe that Siren is a year and half years old! He has grown up so fast!
