New Delhi, Feb. 7 (ANI): In a maiden initiative by the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), a squad of dogs is being raised to aid its personnel in rescuing people in the aftermath of natural calamities.
The NDRF, which was involved in disaster rescue operations like the deluge in Uttarakhand, Jammu and Kashmir and Chennai and the earthquake that struck Nepal last year, has undertaken the exercise on a mission mode.
The force is training a batch of 162 dogs for their specialised Urban Search and Rescue tasks.
A number of them have finished their regime and are being subjected to drills and field exercises where they are made to sniff out life in a collapsed concrete structure. (ANI)
