The alarm phone went on Tuesday, July 24, around 1:00 PM. In connection with the possible upscaling of the search for an Italian girl, the question was how many search teams Oger Search Dogs could supply. The initiative for possible upscaling came from the RHWW that was already on site. They have approached the Cooperating Rescue Dog Organizations in the Netherlands. Oger Search Dogs could promise 6 people and 4 dogs within just over an hour. In anticipation of further messages they have been stand-by for about 2 hours. All prepared leave arranged with their employers, etc.
In the end, the Italian authorities decided not to deploy additional search dog teams any more. This notification reached us via the RHGD of the RHWW. This meant that the scale-up was no longer an issue. Oger Search Dogs has shown to be able to realize a complete search team for a foreign deployment in a short time. Thanks to the RHWW and RHGD for communication. We wish the RHWW a safe and successful further search and wish them a safe home journey.
