HEATH

We are proud to announce our first Honor Litter Puppy, HEATH! HEATH is named in honor of Captain David Heath. David began his distinguished fire service career in 1984 as a volunteer with Bonnie Doone Fire/Rescue in Cumberland County. He was a fire instructor and training officer for New Hanover County Fire/Rescue and North Carolina Office of State Fire Marshall. Additionally, David attained certifications as a Nationally Certified Fire Investigator, Emergency Medical Technician, as well as numerous additional certifications. Sadly, David passed at the young age of 48. At his passing, he was in the process of attaining his certification as an Executive Fire Officer. David served for numerous agencies throughout his 30-year career including Durham Highway Fire/Rescue, Six Forks Fire/Rescue, Wilson Fire/Rescue, Raleigh Fire/Rescue and Morrisville Fire/Rescue. He is greatly missed by his family: Ralph, Pat, Will, Lesa, Lee, Lillianne and many other family members as well as his Fire Department Family. HEATH will be trained as an Assistance Dog in honor of David and will carry on his spirit of helping others.
