Pryor is a FEMA Certified “Live Find” Disaster Search K9. Multiple FEMA deployments including 2 Presidential Inaugurations. Also has been deployed locally for two building explosions. I began my career as a Firefighter 25 years ago and have been on our department’s FEMA USAR team for 22 years. I started as a Rescue Technician but always admired the K9 handlers. When a spot finally opened up, I jumped on it. It is quite a process to become a certified k9 team. Hard work, perseverance and grit. I’ve never looked back. I love it. It is the best career move I’ve ever made. 

Their Gear: We use the Icon Air Harness. The K9 Helm for eye and ear protection, the  Cobra buckle nylon collar and the Service dog leash, which is great for securing your k9 in multiple military aircraft platforms.
