33 US&R Operational Levels Basic Light Medium Heavy

34 Basic Operational Level Minimum capability for safe and effective search and rescue operations at structural collapse incidents Surface rescue from non-collapse structures Minimum level of debris and building contents

35

36

37 Light Operational Level Minimum capability for safe and effective search and rescue operations involving the collapse or failure of light-framed construction buildings and the use of basic rope rescue techniques

38

39

40 Medium Operational Level Minimum capability for safe and effective search and rescue operations involving the collapse or failure of reinforced and unreinforced masonry, concrete tilt-up and heavy timber construction

41

42

43 Heavy Operational Level Minimum capability for safe and effective search and rescue operations involving the collapse or failure of reinforced concrete or steel frame structures and the use of confined space rescue techniques

44

45

46 US&R Training Basic Light Medium Heavy

47 Basic Level Minimum Training Size up conditions and acquire adequate US&R resources Incident command systems Construction types and failure characteristics Structure identification and search procedures Extrication and initial medical care from non- collapsed structures

48 Light Level Minimum Training All basic level requirements Hazard recognition, equipment use, techniques and procedures to: –Locate: physical search, US&R dogs and devices –Access: lift, shore and breach –Extricate: treat, package and remove victims trapped inside or beneath debris from light frame construction structures and basic rope rescue situations

49 Search Ops

50 Lifting, Shoring, Breaching Ops

51 Victim Care Ops

52

53

54 Medium Level Minimum Training All light level training Hazard recognition, equipment use, techniques and procedures to: –Locate: physical search, US&R dogs and devices –Access: lift, shore and breach –Extricate: treat, package and remove victims trapped inside or beneath debris from reinforced and unreinforced masonry, concrete tilt-up and heavy timber construction structures

55

56 Heavy Level Minimum Training All medium level requirements Hazard recognition, equipment use, techniques and procedures to: –Locate: physical search, US&R dogs and devices –Access: lift, shore and breach –Extricate: treat, package and remove victims trapped inside or beneath debris from reinforced concrete or steel frame construction structures and confined space rescue situations

72 Make a large (2 x 2) square box with orange spray paint on the outside of the main entrance to the structure. Put the date, time, hazardous material conditions, and team or company identifier outside the box on the right hand side. This information should be made with lumber crayon/ chalk. 9/12/93 1310 hours HM - nat. gas SMA - E-1 Structure is accessible and safe for search and rescue operations. Damage is minor with little danger of further collapse. 9/12/93 1310 hours HM – none SMA – E-1 Structure/Hazards Markings

73 Structure is significantly damaged. Some areas are relatively safe, but other areas may need shoring, bracing, or removal of falling and collapse hazards 9/12/93 1310 hours HM - nat. gas SMA - E-1 Structure is not safe for search or rescue operations. May be subject to sudden additional collapse. Remote search ops may proceed at significant risk. If rescue ops are undertaken, safe haven areas and rapid evacuation routes should be created. 9/12/93 1310 hours HM - nat. gas SMA - E-1 Arrow located next to a marking box indicates the direction to a safe entrance into the structure, should the marking box need to be made remote from the indicated entrance.

76 Urban Search & Rescue Resources Always use the prefix US&R for Urban Search and Rescue (US&R) resources. Order Single Resource or Strike Team by Type (Capability – HEAVY, MEDIUM, LIGHT, or BASIC.) Type (Capability) Type 1 (Heavy)Type 2 (Medium)Type 3 (Light)Type 4 (Basic) Reinforced Concrete Steel Structures Confined Space Rescue Reinforced/Unreinforc ed Masonry (URM) Tilt Up Construction Heavy Timber Light Frame Construction Basic Rope Rescue Surface Rescue Non-Structural Entrapment in Non- Collapsed Structures RESOURCERADIOCOMPONENT TYPES 1234 US&R Company USAR Company (phonetic) Equipment Personnel Transportation Heavy Inventory 6 * Medium Inventory 4 * Light Inventory 3 * Basic Inventory 3 * US&R Crew**USAR Crew (phonetic) Personnel Trained to Appropriate Level Supervision Transportation 6666 State/National US&R Task Force Pre-Assigned Two Letter State Task Force Designator And # Identifier (CA-TF5) Equipment Personnel Transportation US&R Task Forces are comprised of 62 persons specifically trained and equipped for large or complex urban search and rescue operations. The multi-disciplinary organization provides five functional elements that include command, search, rescue, medical and technical. * Requests should include vehicle capabilities when necessary (i.e, four wheel drive, off-road truck, engine). ** The agency/department sending an US&R Crew will identify the supervisor.
