Summer Piper
San Diego Humane Society Emergency Response Team Volunteer 

Summer is a vital member of the San Diego Humane Society’s Emergency Response Team (ERT). She has the role of Lead Scout in the Fire Animal Search and Rescue Team that focuses on evacuating large and small animals from areas that are behind fire lines and currently evacuated as a result of wildfire activity. In addition to assisting with wildfires, she is also active on the Technical Rescue and Water Rescue Teams where she utilizes her high level of training and specialized equipment to extract animals from any type of hazardous scenario or environment. 

When asked about her experience as a NACA member she had this to share with us “NACA provides a way for us to show our determination to animal care and advocacy by living a standard that is regarded amongst our peers and like organizations.”.
