About the Event
This 8-hour course, from the National Association for Search and Rescue, was designed to prepare emergency services responders to respond and take correct initial actions as an individual in starting an investigation and search for missing/injured subjects. It presumes the student to be well qualified for incident command and emergency operations. This course will cover the duties of an incident commander, incident size-up, mission documentation, initial search tactics, and the practical applications of lost person behavior in both lecture and hands-on tabletop sessions based on real missions.
There is a $30 fee payable the day of class. Any checks should be made to Porter County SAR. Participants will also need a Initial Actions For Search & Rescue Missions Field Guide and the Lost Person Behavior Manual or app. The Field Guide will be available at the class for $9. The Lost Person Behavior Manual is available on Amazon. Alternately a Lost Person Behavior app is available on the iTunes App Store or in Android Play.
