Wigglebutt Quincy's Search and Rescue Drill
Quincy's latest Search and Rescue (SAR) adventure!
Quincy and I, along with our K-9 Search and Rescue team (NCOK9SAR) were invited to participate in Burke Lakefront Airport's disaster drill which is required by the FAA. Our scenario was as follows: Among the burning plane's passengers,(all were made up to look like they had various injuries) two children wondered off while other emergencies were taking place on the airport grounds. We were to find the children quickly, as they both were injured!
There were two K-9 teams, team alpha (our team), was to find a child seen near the airport terminal. Our team consisted of 4 dogs and 4 handlers. The other team, team beta, was to find the other child. The CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) was to follow us, checking that any buildings we might enter were safe. Our team was organized and ready with CERT to follow closely behind. We were fortunate to have a scent article from the child.
