This month CCSO-SAR had its extended summer training event. What makes these extended summer training’s so special is our joint-training exercise with the US Coast Guard. In addition to the USCG, CCSO-SAR conducted patient packaging exercises and a mock search exercise.
Training day! CCSO-SAR conducted this month’s training as a joint exercise with Search Dogs Northwest. Search dogs are an important tool in SAR operations and their role and utilization is very different from the role “ground-pounders” like CCSO-SAR serve. As such, it is important to train with them to understand how they operate and how our team can support them.
