On Wednesday October 23rd, 2013, the nation’s capital’s newest monument was unveiled and dedicated, this one fit for a hero dog. The National Fire Dog Monument honors the work that accelerant detection canine teams (commonly known as arson dogs) do to investigate suspected arson cases in homes and businesses around the country. This monument, co-sponsored by State Farm Insurance and American Humane Association, the first national humanitarian organization, will now have a permanent home outside Engine Company 2 at 500 F Street Northwest in Washington, D.C., and will always be available for public viewing.
