Ben and Eric Darling
Arc Aspicio sponsored firefighter Eric Darling of the Ridley Park Fire Department and his canine Ben, a big Black Labrador. In February 2014, the pair achieved FEMA Re-Certification. Eric and Ben successfully deployed to five missing person’s sites since they were paired in June 2010. Ben’s unbelievable drive and trainability propelled him through formal training, and he is famous for being so excited to go searching that he pulls trainers over just getting to the search pile. Eric was originally assigned to California Task Force 5, but recently transferred to Pennsylvania Task Force 1 with Ben.
