Washington, DC - National Fire Dog Monument Installation in Chinatown (500 F Street NW, Washington, DC 20001) – Today, October 23 - Open to the Public


American Humane Association invites you to join us for the final installation of The National Fire Dog Monument, created to recognize the incredible contributions that accelerant detection canines (arson dogs) make in keeping communities safe. The monument traveled from Denver, CO to Washington, DC last summer for temporary placement at D.C. Fire Station #3 where the general public was able to view it inside of the station’s museum. The monument will be permanently installed on the sidewalk in front of Fire Station #2 in the Chinatown section of Washington, DC on October 23rd.

12:00 – 2:30 PM: NFDM Dedication Ceremony at D.C. Fire & EMS Station #2 in Chinatown (500 F Street NW, Washington, DC 20001) – OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

American Humane Association and State Farm were instrumental in providing funding to The National Fire Dog Monument (NFDM), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization created to build a bronze monument dedicated to all Certified Accelerant Detection K-9’s (arson dogs) as a way to acknowledge their service to the communities where they serve.

These dogs do not ask for anything in return after risking their lives to reduce the negative impact of arson in their communities. The monument design is a standing fire fighter looking down on his Labrador Retriever (2011 Hero Dog Award winner Sadie served as model!), who is looking back up at his handler ready to work.  The monument is titled “From Ashes to Answers.”

I hope you will join us here in Washington, DC on October 23rd, to help call attention to the nation's arson dogs and thank the men and women who train and care for these four-legged heroes who do so much to protect families and communities across America!

With best wishes,

Dr. Robin Ganzert
President and CEO
