FEMA’s Urban Search and Rescue teams search for survivors amongst the wreckage of the World Trade Center.
It’s been nine years since the tragedy of the 9/11 attack but people from all over the world remain touched by the images of Search and Rescue (SAR) dogs digging through the Ground Zero rubble to find survivors. About 400 dogs were deployed at the former World Trade Center. It was the largest deployment of dogs in the United States’ history. Approximately 80 of those dogs were FEMA-certified.
