Unfortunately Patrick was diagnosed in December 2021 with brain cancer which quickly became a full time battle. Patrick was most recently assigned to North Bay Fire Station 94 (Wilmar) as a FF/EMT on B shift He has also spent time at stations 95 and 97 but settled into station 94 where he loves to help train and show off the firehouse dog. His friends and family know him as a dependable helping hand, and his fire family knows him as a man that is 100% heart.
He is currently undergoing radiation 5 days a week, with chemotherapy every night. He is unable to work at this time during treatment. Any donations would help compensate for lost wages and allow his family to spend more time with him.

Hi Karma's human and doggie family. Rick's sister and I are trying to lean how to use Instagram but we are a bit social media challenged. Hennessy's job is to sit at Rick's feet and keep him warm and be the best puppy she can be. Thank you so much for your support, Rick, Hennessy, Raeanne, Pat, and Kate
