Recommended items for Canine SAR pack:



The Canine SARTECH™ candidate must be able to show that they have all of the required equipment as listed below.  The equipment that is required to be carried is commonly compiled to form what is referred as a “24-hour ready pack”.  Such a pack holds those items that would allow the carrier to function in a safe, effective and efficient manner as a Canine SARTECH™ during a SAR incident.  Some items may be carried on a belt, in pockets, or strapped to the person.  This equipment should be carried on all incidents in rural or wilderness areas and is considered the minimum amount.  Consult a physician for recommendations about analgesics and other drugs that you may wish to carry in your SAR pack.  Other items required, additional water for handler and canine as well as additional food for hander and canine, will allow the team to be effective for up to 72 hours as required for NIMS Typing.  The additional food and water must be immediately available in the candidate handler’s vehicle.
