What Is FIRE K9.ORG?
Fire K9.org is a nonprofit public benefit CA corporation founded in 2009, to support and promote the use of professional independent canine accelerant detection teams on an international level. Our organization is funded solely by member dues, sponsors, and donations.
Our certified handlers and their canine partners –sometimes referred to as “arson dogs” – are located in the US, Canada and Europe. They assist fire departments, investigators, law enforcement agencies, and arson task forces engaged in the investigation and control of arson. Trained to detect ignitable liquids, our fire canines search burned buildings, vehicles, vessels, wild land or other suspicious fires and alert their handlers when they find traces of accelerants.
FireK9.org develops and hosts training and proficiency programs for our members to achieve greater competence through the exchange of practical, technical and scientific information involving accelerant detection, canine health, and research.
Members of Fire K9.org help combat crime and reduce the threat of arson by offering canine accelerant detection demonstrations and conducting arson awareness discussions, and fire prevention education programs in their home communities.
