PRLog - Dec. 1, 2011 - SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Glendale, Arizona, December 1, 2011 — The Fetch Foundation and Peoria Fire Department will sponsor an elite Urban Search and Rescue K-9 workshop held at Glendale Regional Public Safety Training Facility December 2nd and 3rd, 2011.
This exclusive event will bring the elite Federal and State Urban K-9 Search and Rescue teams from all over the country to train for:
• FEMA/SUSAR Agility
• Helicopter Operations
• High Angle Rope K-9 Deployment / Repelling
• Confined Space – 63-24 Inch Underground Tunnel with Vertical Drops
The event also includes a dinner to include shared experiences with recent deployment to Haiti, Japan, and Alabama.
“As a local search and rescue team member I am in awe of these teams and their field experiences such as Oklahoma Bombing, 911, Katrina.” States The Fetch Foundation Founder Marie Peck. “These folks are either FEMA or SUSAR K9 handlers and have some significant Disaster K9 deployments, it is the equivalent of meeting Lady Gaga, or Taylor Swift to a Search and Rescue member”
Proceeds from this intensive K-9 training event will benefit The Fetch Foundation “This type of event, recognition and donation is so generous and prestigious that words of gratitude cannot convey the meaning” Marie shares “It is an event and recognition like this that lets us know what we do is not in vain.”
