Prior to the start of our weekly Junior Corps Drill. We had a few four legged visitors and their handlers (many of whom are also volunteers) stop by our Commerce St. Fire Station for some training of their own tonight.

The Guiding Eyes for the Blind Headquarters and training facility is located in our First due response area in Yorktown Heights. They are a nonprofit organization that provides superbly bred and trained dogs to people who are blind and visually impaired. Their dogs are known for their exceptional temperaments and success at helping people gain independence and to expand their horizons of opportunity.

Part of these pups training includes meeting firefighters in full turnout gear, including SCBA’s to become comfortable around first responders and the noise from our equipment should they need to interact with us during an emergency.

Each “good boy and good girl” got to meet a few of our officers in gear and got to search our fire engines for treats.

Before the night concluded a few attempts at a “group picture” were made before calling it a night.
