Need help in locating SAR team
- I am new to this group and am hoping someone can provide some help in my
locating a very special search and rescue team.
Captain Scott Shields, a Parks Department Manager in Westport, Connecticut
and his Golden Retriever Bear were the first rescue team at the Ground Zero
site on Tuesday. Bear, who also searched for people at the Oklahoma City
bombing site, helped recover several victims of the WTC attack, who had been
high-ranking members the New York City Fire Department.
Actually, just 38 minutes after the second tower collapsed on September 11,
the canine search-and-rescue team of Captain Scott Shields and his
11-year-old Golden Bear, was on the scene and ready to help. Shields keeps
EMT kits and oxygen in his car so that he's always ready to go. Cody located
three of the five survivors found in the debris in the first 24 hours -- two
firemen and a Port Authority officer.
I have detailed this team's efforts along with the efforts of many other
teams at my site ( http://landofpuregold.com/disaster 6.htm). I want to
contact Scott due to my desire to nominate him for some special canine
recognition awards. If you have any personal knowledge of this team or
further contact information for Scott Shields, please let me know asap.
Thanks so much.
