Blitz the Fire Dog Dedication

Folsom Fire Station 39
March 22

This VIP dedication for Blitz the fire therapy dog was a first of its kind event to have a K9 puppy inducted into a fire station. The dedication was meant to bring awareness about mental health and wellness, and was organized by Hearts 4 Heroes who provide emotional support to local firefighters suffering from PTSD.
