Finding local S&R Group??

What is the easiest way to find/get involved in a local group? I have a dog that would excell at S&R and I want to see what my options are with her. I am in NC near Charlotte.

Re: Finding local S&R Group??

I know of a trainer in the area that might know......his name is Andy Hanellin and he works with explosives and drug dogs, but has done some SAR I think, Anyway, he would probably know the right people at any rate. http://www.dogsbyandy.com

I would recommend that you contact you local Emergency management office or your local Sheriff's office and thet could get you headed in the right direction.

Re: Finding local S&R Group??

You have some options

My team, SCSARDA is based in Spartanburg
NCSARDA is in Asheville Area
There are some folks in Hickory, I think
Check with the FD in Statesville, there were some people there
Foothills SAR is in Grennville
SCSD is in Charleston
REDs is in Raleigh
There is a team in Rutherfordton but not so sure about them
There is a team in Columbia, STAR team but we have not trained with them in a long time

There are no teams I know of in Charlotte. Mecklenburg County does not call volunteer dogs handlers nor does York County, though they have a couple of people associated with the FD who work dogs.

Oh yes and for NC

These are NOT all dog teams, btw. Just to let you know there is a lot of politics in NC in SAR.
