As volunteer public service professionals, I know on no laws that covers
those persons who are negligent in their duties and performing tasks
that exceed their level of documented training. That is why it is so
important to document all aspects of MSAR training and for team
management to ensure that their teams members perform only those duties
which they were trained. Sadly, in this world of the civil litigation
bandwagon, no one is safe from being the subject of a law suit.
I believe the reason Jorene had brought this topic up, was to advise
SAR/MSAR teams that our role during an emergency situation could be
greatly expanded, providing teams were prepared and trained for the tasks.
