Northern Illinois University police officials and DeKalb fire officials say they recently completed a first as far as emergency training sessions go.
The training instructed first responders on how to care for police K-9 units in the event of an emergency.
DeKalb Deputy Fire Chief Jeff McMaster says first responders complete required Emergency Medical Services training every month touching on various subjects. But this time around was a little different.
“We’ve never had this type of training before, so it was new, it was fresh and very engaging,” McMaster said.
