Spokane Valley Fire Department fire investigator Rick Freier sat down yesterday to talk about his 15-year-old daughter, Josie Freier, who was killed in a car accident Saturday. The community has rallied around a drive to collect toys for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program, which was her favorite charity. She volunteered with her father every year and loved playing Santa.
According to Rick his daughter, known as Jo Jo, was a strong, passionate person. “She hated bullies,” he said. “She stood up to them and chastised them in public.” He loves to hear stories from people about how she stood up for them, he said. “She was an amazing kid.”

It looks like Mako the arson dog had a good time last night at the annual Sunrise Elementary science fair. Spokane Valley Fire Department fire investigator Rick Freier brought his canine partner to the fair for students to meet and it looks like some of the kids were happy to pet him and learn a little about how he works. After a few months on the job Mako has settled in enough to begin making the rounds of local schools. If you are interested in having Freier and Mako visit your school or event to talk about fire safety, call the fire department at 928-1700.
