5 UNCLASSIFIED JPRC / AFRCC Distinctions Joint Personnel Recovery Center (JPRC) Personnel Recovery (PR) / Catastrophic Incident Search and Rescue (CISAR) responsibilities in support of the Combatant Commander PR/CISAR planning and coordination in the NORTHCOM AOR Joint Manning Document approved for Military and Civilian personnel Air Force Rescue Coordination Center (AFRCC) National (Day-to-Day) routine to Mass Rescue Operations (MRO) civil search and rescue (SAR) in support of US treaty obligations 24/7 Coordination Center within the Airspace Operations Center Civil SAR (routine to MRO) support in lower 48 contiguous states (CONUS) Two organizations conducting two distinct missions in the NORTHCOM Area of Responsibility.

6 UNCLASSIFIED Intl Aeronautical & Maritime SAR Manual (IAMSAR) U.S. Nat’l SAR Supplement (NSS) to the IAMSAR Manual USCG RCCs SAR System Civil SAR is a global System USAF RCC IMO SAR Convention (1979) ICAO Convention (1944) U.S. National SAR Plan

7 UNCLASSIFIED Mass Rescue Operations (MROs) are infrequent operations that require the rescue of large numbers of people They are not considered “routine” SAR, but do not meet the threshold of a catastrophic incident (i.e. airline plane crash) Routine SAR is considered day-to-day operations performed by federal agencies—Dept of Homeland Security/ FEMA, USCG, DOI/ NPS and DOD A Catastrophic Incident SAR (CISAR) is any natural or manmade incident, including terrorism, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption, severely effecting the population, infrastructure, environment, economy or govt functions. CISAR is qualified when the response is associated with a presidential declaration and ESF-9 is established. US Civil SAR System “The Olive” No line between “routine” SAR and MROs: unique to each agency, circumstance, and type of SAR (land, aeronautical, maritime, etc.). Black line surrounds Catastrophic Incident SAR. Presidential declaration and ESF-9 established is required. Closer to center: lower probability/larger response AFRCCAFRCC JPRCJPRC

8 UNCLASSIFIED AFRCC Charter Responsible for federal inland commercial, military, and interstate aeronautical SAR in contiguous U.S. –Searching for missing/overdue aircraft –Coordinating all inland beacon searches –Assisting states with their search and rescue missions Validate requests / broker federal assistance –Save life, limb, eyesight, or prevent undue suffering –“Ask, not task” - no tasking authority Considerations for use of DoD assets –Not-to-interfere with military mission –Posse Comitatus Act: military cannot enforce law

9 UNCLASSIFIED AFRCC Civil SAR AFRCC coordinates Federal SAR services in CONUS –Federal (NPS, Coast Guard RCCs) –States (CONUS only) –International (Canada and Mexico) Local, state, tribal SAR organizations are the first responders to day-to-day SAR events within the U.S. –Designated State SAR Coordinators will request Federal SAR assistance When overwhelmed Require specialized capability –AFRCC coordinates all federal assistance Military Civil Air Patrol (CAP)

10 UNCLASSIFIED US SAR Authority National Search and Rescue Plan (2007) –Coordinate SAR in U.S. to meet domestic needs and international commitments –Integrate available civil SAR resources into a cooperative network –Recognize lead federal agencies … and describe civil SAR responsibilities National Search and Rescue Supplement (2000) –Provides guidance NSP implementation –Designed to serve as both a training & operational tool for civil SAR operations

11 UNCLASSIFIED SAR Agreements All 48 State Authorities (Governors) have detailed SAR agreements Land civil SAR services may include aeronautical civil SAR operations –Participant’s involvement in such operations may be governed by agreements between SAR coordinators and various state and local authorities Participants which develop any agreement concerning civil SAR shall ensure that such efforts are coordinated with other interested Participants Any such international agreement may not be signed or otherwise concluded without prior consultation with the Secretary of State (refer to Title 1 USC 112b) All 48 Contiguous state Governors have retained the right to execute SAR within their state. Each state has a SAR agreement with the AFRCC

12 UNCLASSIFIED SAR Responsibilities MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT BETWEEN 1AF/CC AND STATE GOVERNORS MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN AFRCC/CC AND STATE SAR AGENCY Legal Agreement between SAR Coordinator & each State Governor Operational document between AFRCC & each State SAR agency (Dictates day-to-day CONUS SAR Operations)

13 UNCLASSIFIED Mass Rescue Operations (MROs) are infrequent operations that require the rescue of large numbers of people They are not considered “routine” SAR, but do not meet the threshold of a catastrophic incident (i.e. airline plane crash) Routine SAR is considered day-to-day operations performed by federal agencies—Dept of Homeland Security/ FEMA, USCG, DOI/ NPS and DOD A Catastrophic Incident SAR (CISAR) is any natural or manmade incident, including terrorism, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption, severely effecting the population, infrastructure, environment, economy or govt functions. CISAR is qualified when the response is associated with a presidential declaration and ESF-9 is established. US Civil SAR System “The Olive” No line between “routine” SAR and MROs: unique to each agency, circumstance, and type of SAR (land, aeronautical, maritime, etc.).

14 UNCLASSIFIED FEMA Regions JPRC Personnel will tasked to FEMA/ DCO Regions Build interpersonal relationships Continuity w/ DCO/E, State ESF-9 Coords, SAR Coords, EPLOs, etc. Region Focus – High Probability Regions Hurricane: IV, III, VI, V, II, I Wildland Fires: VIII, IV, IX, II, X Floods: VIII, X, V, I, II, III, IX, VII Earthquakes: X, IX, VIII, II, IV, V, VI, VII Volcanoes: X Cross Border SAR: VI, IX, X, VIII, V, I, II Ice Storms: VII, VI, IV, II

15 UNCLASSIFIED CISAR FACTS SAR starts immediately following any catastrophic event (first 24-96 hrs) –Trigger CISAR: Presidential “Major Disaster” or “Emergency” Declaration + FEMA activation of ESF-9 –NOTE: The incident may start at routine SAR (immediate response), or mass rescue, then escalate to an Catastrophic Incident SAR, or may transition directly to a Catastrophic Incident SAR State, tribal, local SAR organizations are the first responders to Catastrophic Incident SAR within the U.S. The affected State has an Operating Incident Command System States are in charge! JPRC will coordinate with each state and understand each state’s triggers for federal support prior to a CISAR event via the DCO/E State SAR Plans should integrate T10 SAR assets USNORTHCOM’s JPRC will plan & coordinate all Title 10 SAR operations during a Catastrophic Incident SAR through the DCO or Joint Task Force
