The Glendale Fire Department is saying goodbye to one of its 4-legged colleagues. Topaz, the department's Crisis K9, died Monday after succumbing to a brief illness. Topaz was a yellow Labrador who is best remembered for his work with children and bringing comfort to those whose lives he touched while on emergency calls. He was a welcomed member in the fire stations, and all firefighters knew him to be a well-trained canine who was always ready to go to work. Topaz’s handler, Lynette Pompa, brought Topaz to the Glendale Fire Department from Michigan’s Paws with a Cause Foundation.
