EMPACT Rescue Canine Program
In August of 2015, six search canines and their handler partners were added to the Empact rescue capability. This is an exciting development in the history of our organization, and a critical component of a professional rescue team.
These dogs play a vital role in quickly locating survivors of earthquakes, hurricanes, tornado's or floods. The window of survival for trapped disaster victims diminish exponentially by the day. Together with the human partners, they work systematic search grids in the debris until a victim is located.
