K-9s prove invaluable in the midst of disaster

  • Dogs are essential for search-and-rescue missions
  • K-9s can cover an area in minutes, human can take hours

We call a dog "man's best friend" for a variety of reasons, but when it comes to the K-9, we owe a special debt of gratitude to our panting pals. K9 handler Tracy Sargent explains how trained search dogs are not only useful at the scene of a crime or an accident, but also how they can make quick work of the job -- canvassing the area in minutes. Human workers would take hours to do the same without that powerful nose on their side!
