Search Skills

NEK9 is an airscent K9 team with over 37 years of search experience. At mostĀ  search calls, we provide 5-10 K9 teams with field assistants/medical support from the Upper Valley Wilderness Response Team (UVWRT). In addition to K9 teams, we provide our own radio communications, computer support, mapping software, and live GPS tracking. Each teamĀ searches a minimum of 80-160 acres in the first shift of 3-4 hours. Teams are managed by an Operational Leader (OL) who works closely with search management.

All of our teams are certified in finding both live and deceased subjects located on land, under water and snow and in debris. Teams are proficient at man-tracking, clue awareness and crime scene preservation.
