K-9’s Invited to Wildland Firefighter Foundation Family Fire Weekend Print E-mail
Wildland Vicky Minor, Director of Wildland Firefighter Foundation (founded in 1999) contacted Lutheran Church Charities and invited the comfort dogs to attend Family Fire Weekend, May 21-22, 2016. Team Reuben from Yuba City, CA, Team Moses from Cairo, NE, and Team Aaron from Napa, California shared the mercy, compassion, presence and proclamation of our Lord to the community of courageous wildland firefighters and their families. In attendance were 120 people, including 19 children. These families came together this weekend to honor fallen wildland fire fighters from across the nation. They came to support and be supported.

During the first day, time was spent listening to families share emotional stories and memories of their loved ones. The families celebrated the heroism of those who died or were injured in the line of duty. The dogs also joined the children on a tour of the smoke jumpers' training facility and one of the jump planes. The children also learned about the special parachutes the smoke jumpers use. The two-day commemoration culminated in a march to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation Memorial Gardens led by the Interagency Honor Guard. The comfort dogs and their humans were there to accompany the families as they left flowers on their loved ones' memorial markers. The dogs provided furry shoulders to cry on and hug. After kneeling down and hugging Reuben Comfort Dog, a helicopter crash survivor later said, "It was amazing how a dog licking my face gave me the courage to stand up and do this" (go into the memorial gardens).
