From DC to Emmitsburg into Philadelphia

Washington DC and station 6 were great to us and the Fire Chief along with many of the Assistant Chiefs came out to visit us. They had the media come to the station and get the word out about our project, a special thanks goes out to Terry the captain on duty at the time for making a few calls for us. From there we made our way to the National Fire Academy to pay them a visit on the invite from Battalion Chief Mike Donlan. Mike stayed with us for two days and toured us around the area, he also gave us some great contacts for the Philadelphia area. We decided to have Jasper stay with him and his Fiance at their home and play with their female lab Toby. We also planned a surprise visit to retired National Fire Chief Charlie Dickinson's home to give his wife a gift and let her sign the fire truck. Mike and the rest of the gang at the National Fire Academy will be on our National tour every year due to the response we got from all the students at the Academy and the surrounding towns.
