Deb Palman was hired as the first female game warden in Maine in the late 1970s. For much of her career, she trained and worked with dogs on wilderness search and rescue (SAR) operations. Deb recently retired from the Warden Service, but remains active as a SAR volunteer. She will discuss some of her most memorable search operations in the northern forest, some exhilarating, some tragic. Deb is an officer of Maine Search and Rescue Dogs and the Maine Association for Search and Rescue and teaches seminars on SAR dog training as a private consultant and trainer.
