Team on the move in the disaster area - support for partner organisations
Following a severe earthquake in Ecuador the aid organisation ISAR Germany - International Search and Rescue has, together with its partner BRH Bundesverband Rettungshunde e.V., dispatched an assessment team to the disaster area.
The BRH Bundesverband Rettungshunde e.V. (German Search and Rescue Dog Association) has been the umbrella organisation for (currently 81) rescue dog teams in Germany since 1976. They are organised regionally as independently registered associations and function on a volunteer, non-profit basis. In some federal states, our teams are specialised services in the respective state’s disaster control. Continued interest is being shown by other teams from home and abroad who want to join the association.
