Plans Management for SUSAR Operations

This forty hour course is designed to meet the needs of the Search and Rescue planning section which includes the Plans Manager and Technical Information Specialist (TIS). Topics include: information gathering, strategies, meetings and briefings, incident action plan (IAP), tactical action plan (TAP), interactions, forms, documents, demobilization, and heavy interaction with GPS and mapping programs. This course meets or exceeds the FEMA/SUSAR Plans Team Manger Course.
There will be a final scenario in which students must gain intel, run a briefing, and build a TAP. Students must pass the end of course test and the final exercise to successfully complete the course.
