You would want to search for SAR clubs in your area and contact them. I talked to someone from our local SAR club last weekend. He said to join their club I would first start coming on my own, just to learn how to use radios, how the humans work in the field, etc. Then they would evaluate my puppy and I could start bringing him. They have a certain amount of training sessions and meetings you are required to attend. Each club will probably be a bit different.

Try http://www.minnsarda.com that would be the State Search and Rescue Association for Minnesota. They can hook you up.

Don't take offense if there is a wait before you can train a dog etc - depends on how well staffed the current team is.

I know we just discussed limiting our team to a few new flankers with no dogs until a new influx of dogs is closer to operational. It is just a matter of ensuring the best training quality for folks who have already proven a commitment.
