My name is Gordon Deno. I am the Emergency Manager for Wilson County, NC. We have partnered with NCK9 and consider them as part of our response team. We have used their services on many occasions. Anytime they have responded at our request, they have handled their mission with integrity and professionalism. The team has provided search training to our local responders on several occasions. The reviews that we have received from course participants have always been positive.

I received my SARTECH II certification almost 2 years ago and can appreciate the hard work and dedication that active certified searchers undergo to maintain their skills through training exercises and continuous classroom learning/re-certifications. NC K9 ERT responds to official agencies requesting assistance with skilled individuals who are eager to volunteer their time to serve their community. I could not be prouder of this team's excellent reputation for their expertise in both the field of sonar detection and K9 search, displaying continuous commitment and accountability.

This group has totally amazed me! I have been a law enforcement officer for 30 years and just when I thought I had seen it all these folks teach me something new. A long story short, Mac and his team found what they said was a vehicle under water with their sonar equipment while assisting with a drowning case. (The vehicle had nothing to do with the drowning.) I was skeptical. We sent divers down to put eyes on the object and sure enough it is a car! Wow, just Wow! That's about all I can say. Totally impressed and I will not hesitate to call them again for assistance.

I am writing to provide information about my experience working with NC K9 Emergency Response Team Inc. I have been impressed with the professionalism and responsiveness of this team. In all of the cases in which I have been involved, the searches have been handled with a strong commitment to ethical standards and sensitivity to the privacy of the requesting agencies and the victim's families. This team has consistently been responsive, thorough and committed. I believe NC K9 E.R.T. Inc, is one of the best search teams in the United States.

I have had the pleasure of being a volunteer for the NC K9 Emergency Response Team (NC K9 ert) for a year now. I first met this team when I attended the September 11th Memorial at Oakwood Cemetary in downtown Raleigh last year. I appproached the team to express my interest and was introduced to Chief Mac Morgan who was very gracious in providing me details on how I could get involved. From there I attended my very first mock search which took place over a weekend that Fall and that’s when I knew I wanted to be a part of this organization because of their professionalism and inclusiveness. This team is dedicated to the service they are providing and I wanted to be associated with them. I became SARTECH II certified early this year and have attended several training classes conducted by NC K9 ert. Highly qualified instructors are brought in from across the country to help train not only our team but opened up to others to attend. I am dedicated to continue to serve this team and am challenging myself now to learn sonar detection. This team has been together for many years and I am privileged to be learning from the best!

I have served a volunteer role in public safety for over twenty years. When prospects of continuing in EMS as a volunteer dried up I found a welcoming home among some of the most honest, diligent, and talented people I had ever met in any public safety field. I was taught skills I would never have considered on my path to becoming an operational SAR-TECH.

This team will deploy at any time of day or night, train in the snow, search under driving rains. The dedication is a class above. The K-9s are absolutely incredible, the time and financial commitments of their handlers are beyond anything I have ever seen in any other volunteer situation.

This service is such a great asset to the area, what would be done without their great efforts to assist in emergency situations.
