Spanish search and rescue team in Turkey

The Duquesa Charitable Society of Saint George continues its support for the Malaga based NGO G.E.R.C.C.M.A. search and rescue unit which uses specially trained dogs who can detect survivors buried under collapsed buildings, members of which, including its President the Manilva fireman Javier Luque, are currently in Turkey as part of a larger ‘Bomberos Para El Mundo’ team assisting with the search for survivors of this week’s devastating earthquake, which has led to the deaths of over 21,000 people.

We have received news from Javier that the team have already had success in finding survivors, thanks to the exceptional skills and training of their canine partners.
