AZ Task Force One Canine Units Deployed
Arizona Task Force One Canine Search Specialists and their dogs have been carefully combing the debris left from a massive mud slide March 21, 2012 in Snohomish County, WA. The dogs are tireless workers with a highly tuned ability to seek and find. These handlers and their dogs spend thousands of hours training for such deployments. It is a highly specialized skill.
The Phoenix Fire Department is proud to have these canine specialists as employees and members of AZ-TF1. But it takes funding to house, feed, and train these talented and useful dogs. This annual event helps raise money for the non-profit organization that trains, certifies, and develops dog teams to be mobilized with Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) Task Forces.
