New Canine Search Puppy and Phoenix Fire Handler Return to Phoenixhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/fire/394Fire9/19/2018 4:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/394/tallon k9 puppy 3 rotated.jpgNew Canine Search Puppy and Phoenix Fire Handler Return to Phoenix<div class="ExternalClass17CAFA317E14408DA48D2372F1616D0E"><html> <p>​Phoenix Firefighter Mike Smith and his new search dog "Tallon" will be available for any members of the media interested in meeting them when they arrive at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport on a Southwest Airlines flight from Philadelphia on September 21, 2018 at 7:40 p.m. on Southwest Flight #2490.  Tallon has been raised at the University of Pennsylvania Working Dog Center and has undergone months of training.  Mike has just met him for the first time and has spent the last few days training with him in Philadelphia. Tallon will continue his search dog training and become FEMA certified with Mike here in Phoenix in the next six to eight months.  He will live with and become a member of Mike's family.  </p> <p>What does it take to train a disaster search dog? An awesome dog, 2,000 hours of training, a lot of commitment by the handler, as well as the dog and their training group, and successful completion of a nationally administered certification test. The test involves the dog searching two 15,000-square-foot rubble sites, finding completely buried live victims and ignoring distractions such as hamburgers, steak, clothing and dog toys. A false alert on anything except a live victim is an automatic failure.</p> <p>A handler may look at 20 to more than 100 dogs before finding a canine partner that has the qualities and drive to do this type of work. </p> <p>Once certified, the dog and handler are qualified to deploy to international, national or local disasters with a FEMA Urban Search & Rescue team such as our Task Force here in Phoenix -- AZ-TF1. <br>AZ-TF1, manned by Phoenix firefighters, has been deployed to disasters including The World Trade Center, Hurricanes Florence, Katrina, Rita, Ike, Harvey, Irma and the mudslide disaster in Oso, Washington. Phoenix Fire disaster search dogs are also used locally to find missing people. Over the past few years, these local searches have been conducted for a missing toddler, Alzheimer patient and injured hikers and have included search operations as far south as Sierra Vista or east in the Show Low area. </p> <p>AZ-Task Force1 is one of 28 National Urban Search and Rescue teams prepared to deploy in response to local and national disasters.  Task forces are located throughout the United States.  The AZ-TF1 canines are purchased through funds raised by the non-profit (501c3) organization Arizona Search Dogs.  For more information about the organization, click on the following link: <span style="text-decoration:underline;">http://www.arizonasearchdogs.co​m/meetthesearchdogs.htm</span> </p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/fireNewsfire
