​Disaster City® features three active piles – each offering unique challenges to search and rescue teams and canines. Each pile has a series of interior tunnels where live “victims” can be placed for both human and canine search and rescue training. Besides two piles consisting of concrete and rebar, Disaster City boasts a wood rubble pile that can be fully customized to replicate damage from any natural or man-made disaster.

Canine Training

Disaster City has quickly become one of the top canine evaluation and training venues in the United States. The facility has hosted the Federal Emergency management Agency’s prestigious Advanced National Canine Evaluation, as well as other national and regional canine events.

Canine training in rubble pile

This is definitely the best class I’ve ever taken through TEEX. I was told before I came that I would need to study beforehand, but after being in the class, I disagree. They covered everything and kept it at a level that everyone could understand. I definitely recommend this to others.
