Calfire Hospital Deployment

Start Date: 04/29/2019


Calfire Peer Support requested dog teams to visit a member of Calfire that was in the hospital dealing with a difficult illness. We arrived at Inland Valley Medical Center and met with two other members of Calfire Peer Support. We stayed an hour and a half visiting in the room. The firefighter missed their own dog and was so happy to see ours!The Emergency room staff heard the dogs were coming and we received special permission to visit from the hospital director. The dogs visited with the nurses, paramedics and EMTs. We spent around 40 minutes and left around 4:30.
