The Sacramento Fire Department on Wednesday will introduce its newest search and rescue canine -- Jakers.
A badge-pinning ceremony for Jakers, the department's newest member of the Sacramento-based Urban Search and Rescue Task Force 7, is scheduled at 2 p.m. at Sacramento Fire Department Station No. 10, 5642 66th St.
According to a department news release, Jakers is joining Anna, who is approaching retirement age as a member of the task force.
Jakers and his handler, firefighter Jeff Ivy, will demonstrate some of the dog's search and rescue skills. Department officials report Anna was one of the first rescue dogs on the ground Sept. 11, 2001, at the World Trade Center.
