Salt River Fire Department Poses with Marie Peck, founder of Fetch Foundation and Emma
SALT RIVER PIMA-MARICOPA INDIAN COMMUNITY—On Friday, January 30, 2015 the Salt River Fire Department got a special visit from Marie Peck, founder of The Fetch Foundation and her canine companion Emma. Under the FIDO Bag program the foundation is able to supply firefighters with lifesavings tools to administer medical attention to a family pet at the point of rescue.
Fire Chief David Bunce and nearly a dozen other firemen were on hand to accept the donation of six FIDO bags which will ride along on the fire trucks.

“There is no doubt in my mind these firefighters will utilize this equipment and training,” said Peck. “It is especially gratifying to see equipment go to first responders that seek us out and understand the value the FIDO Bag program brings to the community they serve every day.”
The FIDO bags come with a specialized breathing apparatus for your family pets, burn sheets, bandages, rinsing saline and protective restraints. For more information visitwww.TheFetchFoundation.com.
