This is cross-posted to MSAR-Riders and MSAR-IL; subscribers
to both lists please pardon me.
On MSAR-IL the question was asked: what does this training
consist of. The format in past years has been a classroom
review of basic SAR skills on Saturday, followed by a mock
search on Sunday. Instructor Patrick Keane is the retired
SAR Coordinator for Illinois. The training meets criteria
for SAR responders set by the Illinois Emergency Management
This is high quality training. Furthermore, anyone wanting
to serve as a SAR responder in Illinois should consider it
essential training and a rare opportunity to network in the
Illinois SAR community.
