Love dogs? At the Texas Engineering Extension Service (TEEX), you’ll meet some of the hardest working dogs in the country. These search and rescue dogs are members of Texas Task Force 1 (TX-TF1) and could one day save your life. Our canine teams learn their skills at Disaster City®, one of the top venues for search and rescue training in the U.S. TEEX operates Disaster City and sponsors TX-TF1.
Meet our canine mascot, Sammie the Search Dog, and follow her adventures on her Blog and Facebook page. Also, visit the TEEX for Kids page to meet some of Sammie’s friends and their canine handlers. Plus, you can find out how to volunteer to be “rescued” by one of Sammie’s friends at Disaster City®.
