SAR-Connect/Info-SAR

$0.00

Instructor: Kavi Singh
Date: Saturday Nov 2
Time: 1600-1700
Cost: FREE
Type: Virtual and In-Person

SAR services in Canada and abroad are provided by multiple entities: Military, Professional SAR, Volunteer SAR, Coast Guard, Police. SAR encompasses a wide range of environments: Marine, Ground, Alpine, Fresh Water, Winter, Summer.

Each entity develops expertise according to staffing, work environment, jurisdiction, types of calls and training paradigms. While each group has unique parameters, there are some common issues that arise – search strategy; medical management of cases (trauma, other); medevac equipment & procedures. At the moment, there appears to be little cross communication to share best practices and knowledge sharing. CAWM is positioned to be a point of connection and cross communication amongst these entities if there is adequate interest.
