The K9-CCC event is sponsored by Herman Hermann Life Flight®.

As part of the training, each handler receives a K9-specific Individualized First Aid Kit (IFAK), which includes wound packing material, gloves, CPR mask for human-to-K9 CPR, and a tourniquet. Handlers are also trained on when it is appropriate to call Life Flight for severely injured K9s. The program operates under the four pillars of teach, train, treat and transport.
