Live find teams will be presented with blinded and non-blinded scenarios, utilizing a team of volunteer "survivors" placed throughout the search areas.
HRD teams will have the rare opportunity to expose their dog to a variety of large, fresh source material not often available at other events.

K9 Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (K9 TECC): Camarillo, CA

  • Ventura County Fire and Police Regional Training Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

When a working dog goes down, every second counts in providing lifesaving care, and in many environments, veterinary care may be hours to days away. Whether law enforcement, military, or search and rescue oriented, canine handlers, tactical medics, and veterinary personnel supporting tactical canine programs in the field must have more than basic canine first-aid or veterinary clinical skills to give a critically injured dog the best chance for survival. Tactical Canine Casualty Care is an intensive, hands-on, scenario-based training course that covers management of the critically ill or injured working dogs in the tactical or operational environment of unstable or hostile situations, and how to ensure the best emergency veterinary care for these teams.

Based on the principles of human tactical medicine, adapting TCCC/TECC guidelines to the canine patient, this course accommodates the participant’s existing medical and tactical skillset and is appropriate for canine handlers, tactical medics, and veterinary personnel. Scenario and situational-based training moves these didactic topics into the operational environment, covering all aspects of care from care under fire, remote and wilderness care, to veterinary support.

Topics covered include:
Management of massive hemorrhage, airway obstruction, and respiratory compromise
Penetrating abdominal and chest wounds (gunshot, stabbing, impalement, fragmentary/blast injury)
Blunt trauma
Head trauma
Heat Injury
Orthopedic/extremity wounds
Gastric dilatation-volvulus (bloat)
Cold and heat injuries
Critical care transport

Mechanism of Injury: The topics above are presented referencing actual cases with the following mechanism of injury: Gunshot wounds, blast injury, vehicular trauma, animal attacks, stabbing, falls, impalement, heat injury and GDV in the operational environment.

Hands-on skills labs: (Taught to the level appropriate for the individual’s scope of care)
Chest seals and occlusive bandages
IV, SC, and IO catheterization and fluid therapy
Needle decompression of tension pneumothorax/tube thoracotomy
Endotracheal intubation
Surgical airway
Patient packaging and transport on multiple evacuation platforms
Patient assessment and treatment drills, MASCAL management
Pain control and field anesthesia
Bandaging and minor wound care.

Sixteen hours of category 2 CEU will also be awarded for EMS providers, as well as sixteen contact hours for all veterinary personnel. Veterinary CE is approved by the NCVMB.

They share years of experience treating critically injured dogs in the tactical environment in this training to ensure this is not “just another canine first-aid class.”

K9 Decontamination Workshop for US&R Teams: REACT Center, WI

9:00am 9:00am

K9 Decontamination Workshop for US&R Teams: REACT Center, WI

Join us at the Regional Emergency All-Climate Training (REACT) Center in Wisconsin for a 1/2 day workshop on K9 decontamination.

Search K9s are valuable members of the US&R team and just like people are at risk for exposure to hazardous materials while on deployment. In fact, K9s are at an increased risk, since they must work without the personal protective equipment that their human counterparts use. 

While many aspects of K9 decontamination are similar to humans, there are several considerations that must be made when approaching the decontamination of dogs. 


This 1/2 day workshop is designed to provide practical knowledge for US&R Specialists of how to approach the field decontamination of a working K9 taught by US&R Veterinarian, Dr. Lori Gordon. This workshop will include:

  • Emergency and non-emergency gross and technical decontamination
  • Canine Sensitivity to chemical, radiological and biological exposures
  • Canine signs and symptoms of exposure
  • Canine metabolism
  • Safety concerns and handling dogs in the decontamination corridor
  • Canine designed decontamination systems
  • Hands-on experience working with dogs in a decontamination line

Click HERE for registration

This workshop is designed for US&R Haz-Mat Specialists, K9 handlers and other US&R Team members.

For more information about this upcoming event, please contact Eric Darling at superfitcanine@gmail.com

This event is being held immediately following our K9 Tactical Emergency Casualty Care Course for US&R Medical Specialists and K9 Handlers at the REACT Center. Register for both and get 3 days of quality US&R Training.


About Our Presenter

Dr. Lori Gordon has been an FEMA IST veterinary officer since 2008. She has published scientific papers on injury and illness among urban search and rescue dogs deployed following the Haiti Earthquake in 2010 and the Oso, WA mudslide in 2014 and has authored numerous FEMA reports on the illness and injury data in canines on federal deployment since 2010. She has been deployed to provide valuable medical support to deployed K9 teams over the years including the World Trade Center (2001), Hurricane Sandy (2012), the Oso Mudslide (2014), and Hurricane Matthew (2016).

Allan Hancock Public Safety Training Complex, California

Our first workshop was a great success. Here are a few things that attendees had to say about their experience:

Variety of venues and self paced training. Very nice having small groups and multiple reps.
A weekend away to just concentrate on working my dog. Camaraderie of getting to interact with other handlers from other areas
Variety of areas all together in which to expose my dogs to different scenarios
Being able to work with different levels of experience.
Having multiple scenarios to train on
Positive working environment. Variety of scenarios/locations all close to each other
