A Search and Rescue dog tracks a scent on the Big Blue River in Edinburgh, Ind., June 4, during the Department of Homeland Security Search and Rescue Conference held at the Camp Atterbury Joint Maneuver Training Center in central Indiana. June 4, 2010 by Sgt. John Crosby.
This guide was produced by the Illinois Fire Service Institute (IFSI) Library to bring together resources about search and rescue animals and their training. These resources include books and audiovisual materials available at the IFSI Library, as well as freely available online material, including articles, websites, books, and videos. The primary audience of this guide is firefighters and emergency responders, but students and members of the public with an interest in service animals and training might also find this guide useful.
The IFSI Library houses more than 65,000 items, including books, periodicals, manuals, codes and standards, DVDs, CDs, e-resources, audiobooks and other fire emergency resources. The library exists to serve all first responders in the state of Illinois. Users can request materials in-person, via telephone or email, or through the Online Catalog. The catalog may be searched by keyword, title, author, subject, or publisher, and the search can be limited to specific formats. You may enter as many or as few search terms as you would like; the more search parameters the fewer results there will be, but those results will be more specific. You can visit us in person, or, if you live in the state of Illinois and have an Illinois library card, we can send the materials you want to your local library via interlibrary loan.
