LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — The Team 5 Medical Foundation is based in Las Vegas, and on Sunday, it gathered in the field to train and teach emergency aid for four-legged emergency response partners.
Imagine this scene: police respond to a suspect with a gun, an officer is hit and none of his partners know how to treat the injury.
You wouldn’t expect that for police, and you shouldn’t expect that for K9 officers either.
That’s why the foundation is here.
Eric Linder, the founder of Team 5, said, “They're expensive, they're family and they're police officers, as well. We see in the field a lot of times they can't get to care fast enough...."
