Drill #129: Search and Rescue
One of the most dangerous tasks performed at a fire is that of search and rescue. Readers will learn how to conduct a successful search in the safest possible way.
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.
