Search and Rescue

I joined my first wilderness search team, Amigo SAR Dogs, in 1998. I started also working with a USAR team in 2012 and  enjoy working with dogs in both wilderness and USAR disciplines.


Some challenges I personally faced, led me to open the non-profit ISARC. ISARC is focusing on improving options for training and certification of search and rescue teams in the northeast as well as building a multi-disciplined emergency resource for local, national and international response.
