The Future of PLSAR

The Future - Contingent on funding and insurance, the team will continue to develop additional technical rescue skills similar to those of USAR Team, including Full Swift Water Rescue, Ice Rescue, Collapsed Structure, Confined Space, and Trench Rescue.

Becoming a PLSAR Team Member

Members are trained in ICS, NIMS and Haz-Mat. The Team's command element has completed advanced training to allow it to serve as overhead within a Type-III ICS Team. This expands the team's role and capabilities to assist when first responder (Fire, Medical, and Law Enforcement) resources are overwhelmed and/or need additional support, (e.g., airplane/school bus crash, fire, flood, evacuations, or other major incident/disaster, whether man-made or natural.)
