[Reporter Cai Zhangsheng/Zhushi Report] Hsinchu Mayor Gao Hongan went to the fire station to care about the firefighters' duty status and food, and presented food bonuses and condolences. She also cared about the special search and rescue dog team, inspected the results of search and rescue dog training and the new special transport vehicle for search and rescue dogs , and awarded the first-line two-star official rank to the search and rescue dog Clay who passed the advanced certification.
Gao Hongan said that the Executive Yuan recently approved an increase in the upper limit of overtime pay for field firefighters to 19,000 yuan. Zhushi is the first county and city in the non-six cities to approve the payment, and it is the third county in the country to have a search and rescue dog training ground. City, she thanked the Zhuke Administration for allocating the land behind the Jinshan team to the city government for free, and will invest 19.5 million to build an exclusive search and rescue dog training ground, so that the training of dog leaders and search and rescue dogs will be more solid.

Fire Chief Li Shigong said that Zhushi has trained 4 search and rescue dogs, among which search and rescue dogs Clay has passed advanced certification, Ica and Henin have obtained intermediate certification, and Veca is in the process of training, and has actually supported many search and rescue missions in other counties and cities.
He pointed out that in the past, when the search and rescue dogs were on duty, they could only drive the decommissioned and modified logistics vehicles of ambulances. Due to the unsatisfactory functionality and comfort, the search and rescue dogs were often in a state of tension, which in turn affected the performance of disaster relief. Considering that every second counts in disaster relief work, In order to ensure the safety of the staff and dogs on duty, we have made a special effort to purchase a search and rescue dog transport vehicle worth 2.5 million yuan, which will be distributed to the search and rescue dog team for safekeeping and use, officially joining the ranks of disaster relief. I believe that professional search and rescue dogs can perform better.
