Thursday, August 27 | 6:30 – 8 pm | Room C010
Join us to learn more about MoSAR, meet dogs and handler teams, learn about training and certification, and see a demo of what the dogs can do.
MoSAR is a volunteer, non-profit dog/handler unit operating under the laws of the United States and the state of Missouri. At the request of law enforcement, fire departments, or emergency response agencies, this service group’s primary objective is to find lost or injured persons and to assist in saving lives. Dog/handler teams and support personnel are maintained to high training standards. In addition to regular unit training and internal testing, each dog/handler team is required to certify annually. Once added to the active roster, each handler is tested at regular intervals in the latest search techniques as well as First Aid, map and compass navigation, and even wilderness survival. Additionally, each handler and their dog must pass regular fitness qualifications. http://missourisearchandrescue.com/home.html
