Cougar Mountain's Remington Steele is a Type 1 Disaster Search Canine with FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) and Sacramento California Task Force 7. She is trained to search disaster scenes for live people who may be trapped in a collapsed structures or under rubble. She barks to alert her handler to the location of the person so that the handler can identify where the rescue team should begin working.
Remi and her handler, Teresa Ortenburger, passed their certification the first time with flying colors and 100 percent accuracy. Remi is an enthusiastic, talented, and very confident working dog who progressed easily in her training. She and Teresa are on standby 24 hours a day to deploy to any disaster nation wide. This team will respond to events such as the World Trade Center disaster and Hurricane Katrina. Remi's special abilities allow the rescue teams to quickly locate and save lives of people they would otherwise not be able to find in a disaster.
