Urban Search and Rescue (US&R) Resource
The mission of the Urban Search and Rescue Resource is to provide technical rescue training and response-ready urban search and rescue (US&R) resources capable of conducting basic or light urban search and rescue operations during the event of a county or statewide disaster. Law Enforcement SAR/US&R teams may be requested through the California/OES Law Enforcement Mutual Aid System.
This resource offers specialized training in low-angle rope rescue; lifting/moving heavy objects; breaking and breaching; ladder rescue; and structure shoring, as well as specific technical rescue oversight and operational support, all as defined in modules in the California State Fire-Rescue Systems curriculum.
