MSP PF call out 1815 Sunday night 3 Nov 13 for a 73 year old female who had been hiking at 1400 and failed to return to her car. CK-9 responded with 14 members and 6 operational dogs joining many LE and firefighters on site. The lady was found around midnight alive and well:-)
CK-9 attended the largest all Maryland SAR team SAR exercise since 2007. We had 14 members and 5 of our operational dogs attend. It was a great exercise with all the teams working together to find 8 subjects. MSP acted as the IC supported by many other LE reps and park rangers. (see pics)
CK-9 has been busy supporting Maryland Charity Campaign events in Annapolis 17 Sep, and Hanover 8 Oct. In addition we again attended the Tiki Bar Pet day on 20 Oct executing many SAR dog demos.
NRP/MSP call out at midnight for a 39 YO male despondent in Patapsco SP. Search was to begin at 0900. While CK-9 and many other search teams were within minutes of arrival on site, park maintenance crews found the subject alive wandering the main parking lot.....the search was terminated; happy ending:-)
