We have a station mascot, a white lab named Mandy. She belongs to one of the firefighters but is only at the station a couple of days a month when we have station tours. She has been taught to do a few fire safety tricks so she demonstrates "stop, drop & roll" and crawling low in smoke.
Glad to hear we're not the only ones. We have a training dummy named "Fred" who likes to scare newbies coming up the dark stairway to the training room! MUUUHHAAA! (note: sinister laugh not me blowing you a kiss)
