Our first pile was the Full Access pile. Full access means I can walk all around the pile with her freely. It was also the largest pile. Phoenix found and alerted on 3 victims in that pile.
The second pile is the Limited Access. This means that I cannot go on the pile until Phoenix alerts. I'm at the base of the pile in a location where I cannot see a thing-this means more waiting until Phoenix barks (that's the FEMA alert). Once Phoenix alerts, I'm allowed on the pile to the location where she alerts. After that, I cannot move anywhere on the pile (unless I choose to go back to Start) until Phoenix alerts again. Phoenix found and alerted on 3 victims on that pile!
Then there's more waiting until all the teams completed their test. We were finally told our results at 6:40pm!!! Turns out they placed 6 victims total, and we got them all correct! Wooohooo!!!
Phoenix and I are now a FEMA Certified Canine Team! FYI- Katy and I are still a FEMA Certified Canine Team too. Yes, my two girls-I'm so proud of them!
