K9 mail just stopped updating
We’re extremely busy assisting numerous agencies regarding the possibility of the Tsunami striking the west coast.
Rescuing people and pets, as well as livestock will be our first priority should the Tsunami be a large one that causes major devastation.
International Office of Emergency Management Disaster Response Division. We've been in contact with the Japanese embassy officials, and NATO, and if they need our K9 Disaster search dog’s teams, SAR coordinators, and other resources, they will request us and then and only then will we mobilize and send in our USAR disaster response teams. We must come up with this money on our own to pay for the airlines tickets, shots, equipment, etc.
PO Box# 1472 Longview, Washington 98632 Office; 360-414-8093 Mobile: 503-705-0258 Email: [email protected]: you can well imagine our International Office of Emergency Management Center has been swamped with emails, texts, and telephone calls regarding the 8.5 earthquake in Japan. Like we've done over the last 25 years, we've offered our services. This is the way it’s always been for the last 25 years.
They will be donating their time, efforts, skills and own money for this search efforts. On Day 6 you and your beloved and hard-working canine companion, Valorie - with Suha and I as witnesses - found 3 more people whom Valorie told us unequivocally were alive under the rubble.To avoid scams, contact your local Department of Justice and see which foreign aid teams will be responding to this disaster.Don't send anyone any $ money or equipment unless you have confirmed with a team that they are in fact responding. Request to see a copy of their written permission to respond from the Japanese government. Harry Oakes will be updating this blog as well as our web site as we receive accurate information.If the Japanese government requests our assistance, then we'll try to raise the money to purchase air fares for the search dog teams that are responding, the cost of the shots, travel, and equipment that we'll be responding with. Since we are NOT a non-profit, but in fact a FOR PROFIT Professional K9 Search and Rescue team, the gifts sent to us are NOT tax deductible. We take time off work (two weeks) and donate our own money and services to the victims of disasters.
Do we charge for Search and Rescue during disasters? We’ve assisted in numerous disasters around the world. Philippines, Kobe, Japan, Oklahoma City Bombing, Hurricane Mitch in Honduras, both of the 1999 Turkey quakes, 2010 Haiti quake, and other disasters we’ve responded to directly or indirectly with coordination efforts, supplies and SAR dog teams. There are times the resources become so overwhelmed that we’re only allowed to assist through sending in rescue equipment, medical supplies, food, water, etc.
Explain this to me as a seasoned rescuer who can't begin to believe this BS is happening all over again.
