ARIZONA BASIC SAR ACADEMY TRAINING- KINGMAN
On Saturday and Sunday (6/13 and 6/14), Mohave County Search and Rescue coordinators prepared and instructed a 16-hour Arizona SAR Basic Academy for new members with Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue and the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue. The Arizona SAR Basic Academy includes training on Arizona requirements, policies and procedures; an introduction to searches and different types of searches (route/location and area searches); safety and hazards; risk management; map, compass and land navigation; wilderness survival; personal survival; communications; the Incident Command System; and an introduction to tracking. This introduction to Arizona SAR is a foundation to much more involved training that members will be participating in as they become more involved in SAR with their assigned units.
Anyone interested in joining and volunteering with our Search and Rescue units can visit our website at www.mohavecounty.us for more information.
