Description:The Search and Rescue in Community Disasters course is designed to provide training for community members to safely conduct search and light rescue response to aid their family and neighbors in the immediate aftermath of a natural catastrophe, technological accident, or human-caused incidents. The course is intended for members of the whole community and draws on information and lessons learned from a variety of disaster incidents such as hurricanes, tornados, and man-made events for discussion points. Hands-on training is used to demonstrate best practices for effective search and light rescue, which can be used in both residential and commercial environments.
