Oct 01 - #TBT Throwback Thursday: The Sacramento Firemen's Band poses on the steps of City Hall circa 1940. Read Post

Oct 01 - The Sacramento Fire Department is proud to welcome the two newest members to our fire family, search dogs Holly and Josie. As the sponsoring agency for the California Task Force 7 Urban Search and Rescue team, Sacramento firefighters own and train search dogs for certification and membership with the USAR team. At last week's national certification event, both Holly and Josie passed with flying colors, with Josie finding all five of five victims hidden in the rubble, and Holly finding four out of five. Each dog receives an official badge with her name on it. Holly and Josie join search dogs Crockett and Kari on the team, and are now ready to be deployed to any disaster area where live humans need to be found under rubble. Congratulations to both dogs and handlers! Coincidentally, it just happens to be #nationalblackdogday Read Post
