I have worked with this group for over ten years. I know of no other that is more sincere, well trained, and ready at a moments notice to respond and offer what ever assistance they may be able to render. I have also had the pleasure of certifying several of the members through North American Police Work Dog Association or National Narcotic Detector Dog Association.

As a team member for many years, it has been a privalige to work with those dedicated to helping, although not a dog owner I have worked beside many who are and see there effort in training a maintaing a level to test and show their hard work. Am considered a ground pounder and been beside several on searches and in their training, And finding tracks of a person over a rock area can be time consuming
Great Team

As a 12 year volunteer HRD K9 Handler, I can honestly say, I could not be prouder to be part of a core team of such dedicated members. Whether in training or on a search my teammates give 1,000% to bring home the missing.

NCCERT is an organization worthy of your support. They perform a very difficult job that is often devoid of any personal reward other than the satisfaction of a job well done. One thing the profile doesn't mention is the countless hours they spend training members of other search teams. We on the Lee County Land Search Team owe NCCERT a huge dept for all of the help they have given us and the wisdom they have shared. All it takes is a phone call to get a lot of talent heading our way. They sacrifice a lot of their own time and money to make the world a better place. _ Lester Armstead,LCLST. (Festuswv@yahoo.com)
