K9- Veterans Day
Saturday, March 18, 2017 
Today some members went to Stoney Creek Veterinary hospital for there annual K9 Veterans Day. One of our 4 legged members Cleatus Brogan, passed away this year. He was honored with a memorial stone for his service and a search dog.
Bill was also presented our highest honor, a challenge coin.
Sorry we couldn't stay for the ceremony, had to respond to a working garage fire in Norwood.
We came back and Bill showed us the stone and handed out a few fire helmets. We were honored to be part of the ceremony.

This week for Drill the crew completed a re-certification course in CPR. Even though the certification is good for 2 years, we like to do it every year as it is an important life saving skill that we can be called to use on a call or outside of the fire house.
