    Calvert K-9 Search Team was established in Jan 2008 based in Calvert county as one of Maryland's Search and Rescue Teams. We trained for almost 2 years in all the southern MD counties gaining required independent national certifications (We use the National Association for Search and Rescue/NASAR for this purpose) for our people and handler/dog teams to meet the requirements set forth by the State of Maryland. We were reviewed by the Department of Natural Resources Police and the Maryland State Police 13 November 2009 and accepted as a provisionally operational SAR team in Maryland!............

    30 hours later we received our first actual call out to the Saint Mary's Veterans Home just before midnight the 14th of Nov 2009. We responded with 9 STMs and 3 dogs and went right to work. The subject walked out of the woods on his own around 2:30 AM.

    We later received the official letters from both the Department of Natural Resources Police and the Maryland State Police stating we were a fully operational SAR Team in the state of Maryland as of 1 Dec 2009!.....
