The current schedule is as follows:

Arson Dog Presentation/Evidence Collection with Oregon State Crime Lab
Portland Fire & Rescue has continued its long-standing support for all fire service and law enforcement agencies across the Pacific Northwest through the Accelerant Detection Canine Team. The K9 Team consists of a certified accelerant detection canine and handler who are prepared to respond across the region to assist agencies in their fire investigations. The K9 has been proven to be an invaluable tool when conducting fire scene examinations, evidence or article sniffs, and suspect sniffs. The team will present their qualifications, training requirements, response capabilities, and discuss case law surrounding the deployment of the K9. In partnership with the Oregon State Police Arson Unit and OSP Forensics Laboratory, a showdown between hydrocarbon detectors and the K9 was conducted. Much was learned and will be shared along with some real life K9 case reviews.
