Dalmatians have a history of being stable guards and carriage dogs dating back to the 1700s. The FDNY began utilizing Dalmatians as fire dogs to accompany carriages as early as the 1870s. Ever since I was a child, I have always associated Dalmatians as “Fire Dogs”. We here at Fire PALS wanted to showcase a box that featured these lovable animals that have a long standing history in the fire service. This box was created by Eric Frost of 3 Lil Birds Tattoo, and sponsored by The Rotary Club of St. Cloud. This box is located on the corner of Dakota Ave and Lakeshore Blvd in St. Cloud Florida.
