Who is in charge of search and rescue and how
does it work? Search and rescue is handled
differently across the country and governed differently. In a lot of cases,
except when it is a military rescue, the sheriff is in charge of searches in
his or her county. Air
is the primary agent who then notifies the state who in turn notifies the
county where the rescue is occurring. Of course the AFRCC does not get 911
calls for lost children or missing people usually. AFRCC usually gets involved
when an Emergency Locator Beacon (ELT) is activated in most times as a result
of a plane crash.
If the rescue happens
to be in waters surrounding the United
States or in lakes crossing
state lines, the United States Coast Guard is in charge who works with the
local jurisdictions. Some areas have private organizations provide all the
resources. If it is a military crash or rescue, the military takes charge.
There are a lot of counties and cities that have little or no resources or need
better resources and these are areas of focus for America Search And Rescue. This is true not just for search and rescue but
in emergency response or disaster preparedness in general. Most states have
mutual aid where other counties, the military and other organizations provide
additional resources to those that lack the proper response. Time, however is
crucial. Cutting response time saves lives.
What resources does America Search And Rescue have? America
Search And Rescue has trained professional
individuals, light duty command and rescue vehicles, communications gear,
rescue equipment, access to certain crucial data that can be used for to save
lives and most importantly volunteers that go above and beyond the call to duty
to risk his or her life to help others with self sacrifice. America Search And
Rescue plans to expand its reach and provide all forms of resources, including
but not limited to, search and rescue, disaster relief, disaster preparedness,
safety awareness, outreach and youth programs, food programs and other areas of
assistance throughout the country and internationally.
