The two NGOs, the Bundesverband Rettungshunde e.V. (German Search and Rescue Dog Association) and I.S.A.R. Germany (International Search and Rescue Germany) officially opened branch offices at the INGO center in the central city’s Wufeng District during an opening ceremony held on Monday and presided over by Vice President Chen Chien-jen (陳建仁).
The opening of the two NGO’s branch offices, which will specialize in the training of rescue dogs and search and rescue teams, is expected to boost Taiwan’s capabilities in those areas, according to a Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) statement.
