Modern search and rescue workers are equipped with a powerful toolkit to address natural and man-made disasters. This introductory chapter explains how a new tool can be added to this toolkit: robots.
Our Mission is to Protect the Entire Family. Animal Search and Rescue ASAR is tasked by the authority having jurisdiction AHJ and mounted by emergency services, animal care and control, and trained responders, to locate, stabilize, extricate and evacuate animals believed to be in distress, lost, abandoned, sick, stranded, trapped or injured. ASAR functions may include:. Providing the resources and expertise to effectively execute animal rescue operations;. Providing situational awareness to assist in coordination of animal rescue efforts;. Capturing, confining, packaging and transporting animals believed to be in distress or adversely affected;.
Search and rescue SAR is the search for and provision of aid to people who are in distress or imminent danger. The general field of search and rescue includes many specialty sub-fields, typically determined by the type of terrain the search is conducted over. These include mountain rescue ; ground search and rescue, including the use of search and rescue dogs ; urban search and rescue in cities; combat search and rescue on the battlefield and air-sea rescue over water. There are many different definitions of search and rescue, depending on the agency involved and country in question. One of the world's earliest well-documented SAR efforts ensued following the wreck of the Dutch merchant ship Vergulde Draeck off the west coast of Australia. Survivors sought help, and in response three separate SAR missions were conducted, without success.
The course is based around rural and wilderness environments but the material is recommended as a base of knowledge for all SAR environments. It provides a common starting point in training for the new person to SAR and in many cases, an excellent refresher course for the more experience SAR worker. This common starting point provides continuity during SAR operations and future training of all team members.
David Lovelock authored or co-authored the following manuals. He also created these documents using T E X. It is aimed at members of the public, primarily in Arizona, who are interested in becoming Search and Rescue SAR volunteers and also at SAR personnel who are new or inexperienced in searches.
The basic training program consists of four courses scheduled on weekends throughout the winter. Each of the four courses gives the trainee a new level of qualification and a better understanding of search and rescue.
