Flagler County, FL – 3 Flagler firefighters are being honored by the Flagler Humane Society for rescuing 2 dogs.
Dennis Moore, Aaron Price and Brian Meehan rescued the dogs in March during a wildfire in west Flagler. The firefighters were working from Station 16 off Old Dixie Highway on the day of the fire, March 24.
High winds allowed the fire to spread rapidly and an evacuation was ordered for some parts of the area. The firefighters found the dogs and bent down the fence they were trapped behind so they could escape.
“I would love to pick a time and have them thanked by the family and Harley the Dane,” says Humane Society Director, Amy Carotenuto, to the Flagler County Fire Rescue Deputy Chief Joe King in an email. “The other dog will be in the hospital for quite a while longer.”
The Flagler Humane Society will present plaques to the firefighters in a ceremony on April 11, from 12 PM to 12:30 PM at the Flagler County Emergency Operations Center, 1769 E. Moody Blvd., building 3.
“It is wonderful that the Humane Society and the family want to honor these firefighters,” says Flagler Fire Chief. Don Petito. “It’s nice to have an opportunity to recognize our firefighters.”
