Members of the Ward Security Canine Team took part in an Emergency Services Day organised by Kings Cross Estate for the local primary school.
The school specialises in the teaching of deaf children and our two dog handlers Richard Montgomery, with his Labrador puppy Louie and Dennis Waterman, with his German shepherd puppy called Shadow, proved to be a big hit with the children.
Also in attendance were the Metropolitan and British Transport Police and the fire brigade with a fire engine. More than 200 children heard presentations from the various groups including one given by Ali Tod, Associate Director Canine Operations, Ward Security.
Ali said “Being involved in educational days like these is very rewarding. As well as providing the children with important knowledge, in many cases we are equipping them with better life skills so that they know how to behave in an emergency situation. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and the children loved the opportunity to meet our security dog puppies.”
