Sounds Like A Search And Rescue Podcast

Welcome to the Sounds Like a Search and Rescue Podcast where we discuss all things related to search and rescue in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. 


Dec 1, 2023 


Welcome to Episode 131 of the Sounds like a search and rescue podcast. This week we are joined by Ken Lindbloom from Texas Search and Rescue. Ken is a volunteer with TexSAR and has a background in emergency and disaster management, His particular area of interest is medical care for working K9 dogs. Ken has done two separate research projects on K9 operational medicine and is joining us tonight to explain the who, what, why, and how of developing a formal prehospital medical program for SAR K9s. To put this simply - when rescue dogs need medical help - how do SAR teams get enough medical training to make sure the dogs are treated until they can get to a medical facility. In addition to the K9 segment we will be ranking the AMC Huts, recapping our recent live episode at Reklis, we have follow ups on eye protection, a story about spite houses, a story about a very loyal jack russell terrier, recent hikes on the Belknaps, Kinsmans, a bushwhack on Mt. Deception, Winter hiking plans,
