On Sunday, October 8, LCC Kare 9® Military Minisrtry Dogs Brutus (LCC Squad) and Nigel (LCC Staff) and their veteran handlers participated in the Elmhurst Fire Department’s Open House at Station #2.
Hundreds of local friends of the firefighters came to see fire trucks, emergency vehicles, and EMTs. The firefighters showed the people a live demonstration of how to put out a grease fire in the kitchen.
The Kare 9s were loved and hugged by children and adults. Their veteran handlers were given many opportunities to share the LCC mission with those who greeted the Kare 9s.
