Disaster Search Canines
As part of Empact's robust Urban Search and Rescue capabilities, Empact is fortunate to have a cadre of highly trained certified disaster search canines and human partners.
These dogs are vital in locating survivors quickly so they can be rescued quickly. The window of survival for trapped disaster victims diminishes exponentially by the day. Together with their human partners, our canine members significantly decrease the time it takes to locate and save these precious lives.
