Resolution Accepting the Donation of an Accelerant K-9 from State Farm Insurance to Hampton Fire & Rescue

 

RESOLUTION

WHEREAS, State Farm Insurance donated the cost of an Accelerant K-9, training for the dog and the handler, and transportation for the handler and K-9 back to the City of Hampton to aid in the investigation of suspected arson related fires, and

WHEREAS, Arson Dogs can be instrumental in the conduct of an effective fire investigation and a properly trained dog can give fire investigators a significantly greater chance of locating samples of ignitable liquids that will be confirmed by chemical analysis, as well as, detect traces on the clothing of suspects and bystanders, and

WHEREAS, Hampton Fire & Rescue welcomes the opportunity to accept this important tool which will assist our fire personnel on the scene of fire investigations.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia that the Arson K-9, known as Taylor, be accepted for use by Hampton Fire & Rescue.

Adopted at the regular meeting of the City Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia held on October 8, 2008.
