Weekly Drill: No. 112 - Search & Rescue

This downloadable drill reviews the principle skills and strategies that crews involved with search and rescue efforts on the fireground must understand.


Drill #112: Search & Rescue

Readers will learn that all firefighters who are going to be assigned duties for search and rescue must be properly trained and prepared to perform these tasks.

The drill is designed to be a single page of information to conjure up discussions among your crew members. Sit down and talk about the exercises, and how they may apply to your company. But, just don't read them. Get moving. Head to an appropriate area and train.

Post the information in prominent places in your stations so it's readily available for review.

Please remember to check your Standard Operating Procedures or Guidelines (SOPs/SOGs) before using the drill.
