The Search and Rescue in Community Disasters course provides training for individuals to survive a disaster and to safely conduct search and light rescue response, aiding their family and neighbors in the immediate aftermath of a natural catastrophe, technological accident, or human-caused incident. 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, tornadoes, and man-made events for discussion points. This course is not intended for the professional responder however would be beneficial for the responder’s family. The course also uses hands-on training to demonstrate best practices for effective search and light rescue, which can be used in both residential and commercial environments.
