Ember reported to duty at 7:00 a.m. on Sunday morning.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The Sevierville Fire Department has a new worker, Ember, a Continental Kennel Club (CKC) registered Dalmatian.
Ember reported to duty at 7:00 a.m. on Sunday, August 29.
She spent most of her day exploring her new home, playing with her toys and giving/getting lots of love from her new coworkers.
Ember will be living with a member of SFD for a while but will slowly transition to be a trained station dog. Once this happens, she will be staying all three shifts at the headquarters.
Ember officially started training on September 1.
“Exciting things are coming and we can’t wait to keep you updated on this beauty’s progress!” said TN Pro K9, the training organization helping her.
Ember had her second training session on Monday, September 11.
“This little girl’s energy and true puppy are starting to come out. This team is doing awesome!” said the trainer at TN Pro K9.
The fire department said the name Ember was decided by second graders from Catlettsburg and Sevierville Primary schools.
