    She was given “star treatment” as she was taken to the set in limousine and given a winner’s basket, recognition plaque and a director’s chair with her name on it, according to TODAY.com.

    Smokey works to train Jacksonville children to "stop, drop and roll" — primarily Kindergarteners through 3rd-graders.

    Firefighters rescued Smokey as a puppy from a 2009 house fire. Now she lives in a substation.

    "Chicago Fire" airs at 9 p.m. CT Tuesdays on NBC.
