TRAINERS & HANDLERS

In the entire nation, only a handful of facilities exist that can ready anyone for the demands of an urban search-and-rescue mission. Though most first responders are already highly trained, they may require additional preparation, not only in canine search-and-rescue, but also in other, more advanced technical aspects such as structural collapse, heavy rescue and medical triage. Proper training is crucial when lives are at stake.
