Intro to Swift Water Rescue



Intro to Wilderness Search and Rescue This course is designed to give first responders an idea of where to start when called to help with a wilderness search. Participants will gain knowledge in SAR tactics/operations, preplanning, lost person behavior and learn how to operate a Wilderness SAR mission within the incident command system. Participants will then apply these skills in a mock Search and Rescue operation. Participants should come prepared for the weather, bring a compass and/or GPS (there will be some available) and be willing to "get lost."
