“What an amazing night all dedicated to K-9’s with a special rememberance to Yarmouth Police Dept. Sgt. Sean Gannon the day before the 5 year anniversary of his passing.
Explorers got a special presentation from Denise and Patrick Gannon, parents of Sgt. Gannon, along with State Representative Steve Xiarhos who was the Deputy Police Chief for Yarmouth at the time of the incident.
Massachusetts State Police Troopers Colella and Reen along with K-9 Fulton spoke about arson investigation and even did a demonstration for everyone.
Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Desroches with K-9 Starr spoke about the law enforcement side of working dogs and the specialty of K-9 Starr being a comfort dog.
New Bedford Fire Department Firefighter and Hazardous Materials Coordinator Travis Rebello with K-9 Kona spoke about her specialty of tracking materials used in weapons of mass destruction and even conducted a demonstration.
Not only were our explorers here, but we also had the Westport Fire Explorers-Post 774 in attendance for this terrific evening. It was amazing to have so many people and organizations come out to spend time with us!”-Mattapoisett Fire Rescue.
