Search & Rescue Dogs Organisation in Australia

Did you know?
  • An average dog has 220 million scent receptors, compared to a human who has only 5 million.
  • Dogs can move their nostrils independently of one another, allowing them to pinpoint the source of a scent.
  • Dogs have long been used in history for finding and rescuing lost people.
  • Humans shed around 40,000 skin cells each minute; these skin rafts are unique to each individual and are thought to be a key scent that Search & Rescue dogs use to locate live victims.
They are a number of Canine Search & Rescue Organisations in Australia:


Search &Rescue Dogs Australia Inc. (SARDA Inc.)

Search & Rescue Dogs Australia Inc. (SARDA Inc.) is a charitable, non-profit volunteer organisation incorporated in 1994 and is based in Victoria and also with teams in Queensland. Victorian members primarily based on the Mornington Peninsula south of Melbourne and Queensland members based in southern Brisbane and on the Gold Coast.


SARDA currently trains their teams for assessment and deployment in Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) with Australian USAR Taskforces.

 

State Emergency Service Search Dogs WA sesdogswa.blogspot.com.au

The Western Australian State Emergency Service Canine Section assist the WA Police in searches for lost or missing people. The team is part of Department of Fire and Emergency Services and State Emergency Service of Western Australia and are known as the “Canine Unit”. Its members consist of handlers and dogs, each forming their own individual teams. These teams are trained for:
  • Area Search and Rescue
  • Scent Specific Tracking Search
  • Rescue of lost people


They are the only authorized search dog group that assist police in searching for missing people in WA.

  • Area Search and Rescue is when a team is given a particular area to search (generally a bush or forest area) and they are to completely clear the area of lost or missing persons.  Area Search dogs are trained in using scents, usually cast in the wind, on objects or on the ground.
  • Scent-specific Tracking Search and Rescue is when a team is given a scent article (generally an item of clothing or an item with strong individual human scent) and the dog will track this scent from the last known location of the missing person. Tracking dogs also use the ground and wind in tracking a particular human scent.
