Service Description

The Introduction to Search and Rescue (ISAR)/SARTECH III course is designed to provide knowledge concerning the general responsibilities, skills, abilities, and the equipment needed by persons who would be participating in a search or rescue mission. The course is based around rural and wilderness environments but the material is recommended as a base of knowledge for all SAR environments. ISAR/SARTECH III is the first course in a stepping stone approach to higher-level NASAR courses of training for emergency personnel. 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. - The multiple choice SARTECH III online exam is taken at the end of the ISAR course. - Who Should Attend  Persons who are interested in becoming involved or have just become involved with search and rescue operations.  SAR personnel who would like to maintain or refresh their knowledge of search and rescue.  Emergency response personnel who belong to organizations who provide resources and assistance during search and rescue missions.  Managers of emergency response organizations who want to understand the state-of-the-art skills and knowledge needed by the SAR workers.  Community members and groups (scouts, hunters, hikers, etc.) that have an interest in safety and preventative SAR operations - Prerequisites There are no prerequisites to the ISAR/SARTECH III course. Topics  SAR: What is it and how do you fit in?  Components of SAR  SAR Management System  Land Navigation and Orienteering  SAR Resources  Search Philosophy and Probability Theory  Search Tactics  Clue Cons  Search Operations  Lost Person Behavior  Helicopter Operations in SAR Communications
