Celina

Celina is the Lewisville Fire Department’s newest liquid accelerant detection K-9. She is a part of one of two liquid accelerant detection K-9 teams in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. “She is a wonderful dog,” Fire Captain Jason Martinson said at a Lewisville City Council Meeting. “She loves the affection, and she loves having people around her.”

The Lewisville Fire Department is now one of two departments in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex to have a liquid accelerant detection K-9 program.

Celina, the fire department’s new liquid accelerant detection K-9, was assigned through the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms. She is a 20-month-old black lab and was raised in the prison system, receiving training from the Puppies Behind Bars program where inmates train service dogs for first responders and wounded veterans. She is trained to detect six chemical compounds, allowing her to detect over 200 accelerants.
