Wade Munson and his dog Pax are inseparable. Often seen together at fire houses and in the community, Munson gives Pax a toy to give to officers and is willing to be pet by most anyone.

But Munson and his dog are not just citizens, they work for the fire department.

Munson, a firefighter and paramedic with the Orange County (CA) Fire Authority, is the canine peer support specialist for the fire authority.
