Search and Rescue (SAR) is the lifeline of emergency response. Whether it’s tracking a lost hiker or leading a full-scale avalanche response, SAR personnel are integral to people, communities and organizations.
This section contains a variety of materials that may help to structure and organize search and rescue tasks. These materials do not replace the need for formal training; rather, they are a reminder of the activities and tasks that may be involved in search and rescue.
