Kasey the Fire Dog visits schools

 MOUNT WASHINGTON — So easy a dog can do it.

That’s the premise behind the Kasey Fire Protection Program.

Retired firefighter and paramedic of 31 years Jeff Owens started the Kasey Program over 25 years ago with his trusty black lab, Kasey, to teach elementary aged students how to react in case they’re ever in a fiery situation.

An Indiana native, Owens recently visited Mount Washington, Roby and Maryville Elementary with Kasey and his rescuer-in-training, Kali.
