Welcome to Southeast K-9 Search and Rescue!
Southeast K-9 Search and Rescue is a Non-Profit Organizaation that provides specially trained Search and Rescue
Personnel, K-9 Units, and Equipment to most of the United
States. We are staffed by 100% Volunteers and receive absolutely NO
It is our mission to save lives by providing our personnel, K-9s, and
equipment free of charge to Disaster and Emergency Situations throughout
the country. Our search and rescue personnel hold active
certifications from Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), National
Fire Academy (NFA), Tennessee Association of Rescue Squads (TARS),
American Heart Association (AHA), Department of Homeland Security, Tennessee Emergency Management Agency (TEMA), American Red Cross, University of Texas A&M, National Preparedness Directorate, National Institute for Justice, as well as too many others to mention.
We currently have K-9 Teams based in McEwen TN, Dickson TN, Clarksville TN, Smyrna TN, and Madisonville KY. Our K-9 Teams all dispatch from the same dispatch office but by placing offices in several locations we cut our response time which is critical to saving lives at times. Our K-9 Teams usually dispatch with a minimum of one K-9, one handler, and one flanker, but can be dispatched with support personnel and any other equipment that may be necessary for completion of the mission.
Our team is also excessively trained for missions other than just K-9 Rescue. We have members who are trained for Swiftwater/Flood Rescue, Rappelling/Rope Rescue, Extrication, Wildland Fire Fighting, Confined Space Rescue, Cave Rescue,Animal Rescue Response, ETC.
Our team has many other missions that we do in our idle time when not on
dispatch. We offer CPR classes, free of charge to any person or group
in our area. We conduct trainings and mock missions in different
communities and on different landscapes to insure optimum use of our
animals and staff. Most of these trainings are open for public
exhibition. We are working with Fire Corps to allow citizens to help our
team in a support services roll without having to work as a fully
operational responder. We have just started a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) to help the community in the event that the Emergency Responders are overwhelmed or unable to respond to an emergency. We also Place and Train Dogs with other organizations in places where they are previously unavailable. Right now we have placed a Belgium Malinois with South 40 Fire Department in Benton County TN and are training the dog for use countywide. We are training a dog in Dickson TN which is going to help with our team.
