Rampart Search and Rescue
also specialize in Canine (K-9) search and
requests, our K-9s search dogs are highly trained
and ready to respond 24/7.
dogs are available to any Law Enforcement agency,
regardless of location.
Rampart search and rescue search dogs respond to any
agency's request in Adams County for search and
rescue (SAR) incidents. We are training our search
dogs year round (weekly) to respond on calls related
to missing and/or lost people in the county's
urban and suburban areas and for mutual
aid in "mountain" country. We train our dogs for
trailing, tracking, air scenting, cadaver and water
searches across Colorado to assist in searches for
lost people. They know that when our rescue dog(s)
locates a lost person, the life-saving skills of
human searchers are always close at hand.
Our dog handlers are trained in backcountry travel
including map and compass, global positioning system
(GPS) use, summer survival, winter survival, man
tracking, and search and rescue operations.
Rampart search and rescue
dog handlers are also trained in emergency medicine.
All members can provide immediate life support to
injured victims. Skills range in wilderness
emergency medicine to basic life support.
Experienced Rampart search
and rescue dog handlers are willing to fill a need
during searches in the backcountry, urban, rivers
and lakes by request from law enforcement.
