Search and Rescue Dog Association (Ireland)

Yesterday, at the invitation of The Irish Coast Guard, some of our members attended a joint training exercise at Dunabrattin Head, Bunmahon, Co. Waterford. The exercise centered around various cliff, shoreline and water based exercises and involved coordinated responses from land, sea and air. It was a great opportunity for our members to interact with the agencies based in the area and for our dogs and handlers to further familiarize themselves with the sights and sounds of the aircraft. Thanks again for your welcome yesterday and we look forward to working with you in the future.
