Guide Dogs in Training Visit Lakeside Station 2

Station 2 had a unique tour the other day: puppies!  Guide Dogs of America asked to have a tour of the station so the dogs could get used to the sound of the fire engines running, sirens sounding, and also being in the back of an ambulance.  

The dogs were able to smell the firefighting gear and hear firefighters breath air out of the breathing apparatus.  Guide Dogs of America train dogs for the blind and the dogs that visited were currently in training.  It was an educational experience for us all.
