Have you ever heard of the phrase, "first one in, last one out?" It refers to people who are the first to arrive and the last ones to leave - FILO's for short. When it comes to containing and preventing the spread of fires, Firefighters are the FILO's of all first responders; these brave men and women will work tirelessly to fight against the elements, trying to save as many lives and as much property as they can in the process. Fighting fires requires a person to be pretty fit and versatile. Incidentally, many of the activities that can whip a person into firefighting shape can also be completed with a dog!
As temperatures and the number of annual wildfires continue to rise, the workload of firefighters will become greater in turn. So if you happen to be a firefighter, we'd like to thank you for the hard work that you and your comrades put into fighting and preventing fire based catastrophes. Hopefully, you'll consider trying at least a few of the activities we've discussed earlier with your dog as we feel that you and your pet will only grow closer from working and playing together. Firefighters may be the FILO's of emergency services, but they don't have to go it alone; at work, you'll have your fellow firemen and firewomen backing you up and at home, your dog will always have your back.
