There’s a new employee at the Maryland State Fire Marshal’s office – K9 Deacon and his human Senior Deputy State Fire Marshal Jeff Thomas. Deacon is a 13 month old yellow Lab and has been ATF-trained in the accelerant detection canine program. They are the sixth team trained in accelerant and explosive detection and will respond across Maryland.
Deacon was raised by Paws for a Cause and later transitioned to Von Der King Kennels and Training before being acquired by the ATF for the accelerant detection canine program. They will join nearly 60 other teams across the country.
