    Default Get Out with Scout

    I have recently lost my partner, Scout, who was the main instructor for home escape progams. Scout was a specially trained Dalmatian who helped present the following actions: Checking a smoke detector, Crawling low in smoke, checking a door, going to and waiting at a meeting place, dialing 911, and stop, drop and roll. This type program takes a lot of time and upkeep for the star, but reaches kids and adults in ways that the standard firefighter just cannot. If you have any questions I will be glad to field them. See the link below for an article and pictures published by the Dalmatian Club of America about Scout and his program.

    My condolences for your sad loss.

    I'm sure the firefighters who have made the ultimate sacrifice welcomed Scout with open arms and hearts. *sad smile*
