Search K9 (USAR, FD) Since the disaster at WTC in New York, there has been an overwhelming request about fire service search canines.

I have been involved with a training group in Sacramento, CA for about five years working with an FEMA advance certified canine.

We can provide information about implementing a search canine program in your department. We can provide existing written policies and procedures that are in place currently for fire departments with on duty search canines. There are over 24 fire service canines on duty in California.

The Public relation attention will make your administration and city council shine.

The canine can be deployed for local incidents as well with a USAR team or within your state and to neighboring counties.

The organization that donates the professionally trained canines in California is the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation.

The foundation is currently sending caines to Florida, Ohio, and Mexico.

If you interested or your department is interested in this type of program you can contact me here or by email.
