Members of the Missouri Valley Search and Rescue Team are primarily Ground Search trained which is a vital asset needed when working with any K-9 Team. Our team does not currently focus its efforts with a K-9 division, but our members are trained to be the support personel that the other K-9 teams that we would be assigned toon any search. Our training allows us to be the eyes and ears for the handler in the field as we train constantly on various aspects of ground search and rescue skills. From using a map and compass and a GPS, first aid and CPR and survival skills our member are trained to handle any type of wilderness searches, in any terrain, that would be found in Missouri and Illinois in all types of weather, day or night!
In addition to our K-9 Flanking resource we do also offer K-9 resources that have received national certifications in their diciplines. These resources are available just as our other services are, FREE to Law Enforcement and any other Emergency services that request us!
Operational K-9's: We have no K-9's in training at this time.
