The Danbury Police Department has received emergency kits for all three K9s: Dirk, Cael, and Gunner. The kits were put together by Liz Cavo, wife of Mayor Joe Cavo. Each of the officers who handle the K9s now have these Trauma Kits, oxygen masks, and Narcan. The kits provide components to treat life-threatening injuries in a tactical environment, away from veterinary care. The items include a K9 tourniquet, muzzle, and other items. Liz, who has a background as a trauma nurse, reached out to the Police Department to learn what resources were available for the dogs and then set out to create individual backpacks for each handler to keep on hand.
