SEOUL, Nov. 20 (Korea Bizwire) – The opening ceremony of the nation’s most extensive canine training center will be held in concert with the retirement announcement of one of the fire department’s canine search and rescue veterans.
Nine-year-old Andy first joined the force in 2012. Since then, he has racked up an impressive record of service, helping save one individual and recovering the bodies of seven dead in one hundred or so missions through mountain searches and collapsed buildings.
Taking place on November 20 in Daegu, Andy will be recognized for his meritorious accomplishments and will have the honor of unveiling a new 816-square-meter training complex. Andy will also see six of his fellow search and rescue dogs be sent to new homes; three will head to Seoul as part of the 911 special rescue unit, and one each of the remaining three will be sent to Gyeonggi Province, South Jeolla Province and Busan fire departments.
A total of 29 search and rescue dogs are to undergo training at the new facility.
