Standard Classification of Human Search and Rescue Resources
|Publication Date:||10 October 1999|
|ICS Code (Accident and disaster control):||13.200|
This classification is intended to aid search and rescue (SAR) managers in ordering resources for search and rescue incidents and to aid in communicating the types of tasks for which search and rescue crews have been trained.
This classification is intended as a supplement to the resource typing specifications of the Incident Command System and specifically as a means of typing human resources used in search and rescue activities.
This classification is suitable for classfying search and rescue crews for a wide variety of emergency management purposes.
This classification does not attempt to classify individuals or put forth standards of performance or training for individuals, nor is it meant to convey certification, skill proficiency or other measures of the level of performance of the resource. These qualifications are the responsibility of the local agencies responsible for utilizing the resource.
