The Salina Fire Department recently welcomed its newest member, a new K9 dog.
Hoke, a 14 month old yellow Labrador Retriever, will serve as the department’s new Accelerant Detection K9. He will work along side of his handler, Fire Inspector Troy Long.
Hoke will replace the previous K9 dog, Ashes, who will be retiring this year. Ashes’ exact retirement date has yet to be determined.
