This standard identifies and establishes levels of functional capability for efficiently and effectively conducting operations at technical search and rescue incidents while minimizing threats to rescuers. It is intended to help the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) assess a technical search and rescue hazard within the response area, identify the level of operational capability, and establish operational criteria.
Provisions define levels of preparation and operational capability and provide an outline of a system that progresses from the simple basic awareness level to the operations level, and, finally, to the technician level. In addition to rope rescue, types of search and rescue operations covered include structural collapse, confined space, vehicle, water, wilderness, trench and excavation, machinery, cave, mine and tunnel, helicopter, tower, and animal rescue.
