Search and Rescue is all about team work. Without our group working as a team we would not be able to deploy.
Our Ground Team members are masters of the technical aspects of land navigation, crime scene awareness, patient assessment, care and packaging, and wilderness survival. They also act as support to our dog teams, navigating, and being in charge of radio communications.
Our dog teams cannot deploy without support from a ground team member, as the handler needs to be focused on ‘reading’ their dog for signs that the dog has picked up a scent.
We take great pride in the recognition that we have received from the law enforcement agencies with whom we work – for our diversity in canines, attention to detail, and professionalism.
