Military Search & Rescue Dogs

Army using search and rescue dogs to 'sniff out' survivors

Quote:
new pilot program enhances the life-saving capabilities of the Army's only rescue-focused unit by adding a few extra noses to the team.

The Urban Search and Rescue dog pilot program, which was specifically designed to augment the 911th Engineering Company, employs the natural scent-tracking capabilities of canines to find survivors in the event of a catastrophe.

The 911th, based out of Fort Belvoir, Va., and assigned to the Military District of Washington, is a unique, quick-reaction tactical rescue unit poised to respond to natural disasters or attacks to the nation's capital.
