New York State fire services and local departments paid honors to Marsi, one of the original four NYS Search and Rescue Dogs as she crossed over the rainbow bridge. Marsi, 15, was a dedicated and commendable search and rescue dog for over 10 years. Marsi’s handler was Jason Geary (above). The fire services units and K-9 units gathered to show one of their own respect for her dedicated duty to the fire service.
