The Sheffield Lake Fire Department is mourning the loss of their mascot and friend “Quint.”

Quint the Fire Dog was laid to rest last Friday after serving as the official mascot of the Sheffield Lake Fire Department since 1998.

Scott Kozlowski, President of the Sheffield Lake Fire Fighters IAFF Local 2355, said Quint adapted well to his duties as a greeter for the many visitors to the Fire Department. He also was a companion to the many Firefighters who worked at the station during his time there. “It didn’t matter what your day brought, Quint was always at the station happy to see you and ready to be a friend. He was a member of the department and a member of our family.”

The Sheffield Lake Firefighters have traditionally always had a dog and in time they will consider getting another one Kozlowski said, but for now they are still mourning the loss of their friend. “Quint brought much joy to us, the community and other communities. Quint used to attend the North Ridgeville Corn Festival with the North Ridgeville Fire Fighters and take pictures with the kids to raise money for MDA. He will forever be missed and remembered by the Sheffield Lake Fire Fighters.”

Quint was a great dog. the kids loved him, I sure hope they get another dog. I can't think of one reason why they should not replace him and keep a great tradition alive.
