Congratulations to Angela and Calvin in achieving certified field support status! Our field support are an integral part of our K9 search teams. Certified field support status is achieved via a months-long process of learning and demonstrating navigation, radio communications and K9 support skills. All of this is topped off by passing a written examination.
