Reqs the fire dog may not be your usual employee, but he’s certainly proving his worth at Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service.

He will accompany seven-year-old fire investigation dog CC, who is nearing retirement, on assisting in a number of high profile cases including attempted murders, fatal fires, arson attacks and suicides.

The talented canines are the only qualified fire dogs in the region. You can follow their adventures on Facebook by visiting http://bit.ly/SXIHwF or following @ReqsFireDog on Twitter.
