CAR boosts search and rescue capabilities with K-9 SAR unit

BAGUIO CITY, Sept. 5(PIA) - -  Search and rescue capabilities  in the Cordillera Region   gets a boost  with  the completion  of the K-9 Search and Rescue team   of their  extensive training.

At least 17 dogs and 18 handlers graduated from a one-year extensive training on search and rescue last August 30 at the Philippine Air Force Tactical Operation Group – 1 in Loakan Airport.

The commencement exercise was led by Office of Civil Defense -CAR Regional Director Alex Uy, Police Cordillera Regional Director PCSupt. Elmo Francis Sarona and PAF-TOG-1 Commander Col. Onorlie Brillantes.

The K-9 SAR training aims to reinforce search and rescue efforts in Cordillera region and to improve the chances of people caught in future disasters to be rescued, Uy said.

The creation of the K9 SAR team formed for the Cordillera Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council’s Search Rescue and Retrieval Cluster, was made possible through the combined forces of the OCD-CAR, PAF-TOG-1, Philippine Military Academy, PRO-Cor, Baguio City Police Office and local civilian dog enthusiasts.

OCD-CAR Information Officer Frances Carasi said that most of the dogs are owned by the police and military personnel but some dog enthusiasts volunteered their dogs to be trained as well as themselves as trainers for the K-9 SAR units.

Learning from experiences in Baguio calamities, the K9 units will boost the region’s capabilities, if not to minimize casualties.  

The K-9 units she said will be deployed anytime they are needed through the OCD-CAR and its partner agencies in disaster risk and reduction management. (JDP/RMC- PIA CAR) *Redjie Melvic Cawis
