Urban Search & Rescue

Urban Search and Rescue Task Force members

Members of the Urban Search and Rescue (US&R) Committee are fire and emergency service subject matter experts with local, regional and national search and rescue response experience.

IAFC's US&R Committees' goal is to provide a link between all levels of response with the common goal of recognizing a national response capability across the U.S. The committee works to gather data to contribute to a collection of search and rescue-type resources that are available for all levels of response.
