CATF-4 K-9 T-Shirts
T-shirts are available for CATF-4 Canine handlers (on and off duty) as well as supporters of these phenomenal K-9 teams by visiting our on-line store.
California Task Force 4 is one of only 28 teams under the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Urban Search and Rescue (US&R) system.
Urban Search and Rescue involves the location, rescue, and initial medical stabilization of victims from a variety of natural and man-made emergencies including; earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, building collapses and terrorist activities.
These FEMA teams can quickly deploy to an event and must be able to deploy within six hours and sustain themselves for 72 hours.
Canine Search Teams (handler and canine) play a critical role during these operations. The canines locate survivors, using their incredible sense of smell to detect live human scent, even from a survivor buried deep in rubble.
CATF-4 K-9 Search Teams undergo extensive and on-going training to be prepared. The handlers bear their own expenses for the canines and proceeds of T-shirt sales will go directly to their training fund.
Thank you for your support
