Search planning

Its a cold night and the team has been called to search for an overdue walker.

Once on station a search plan has to be created in conjunction with the National maritime operations centre.

Maps are checked , details are checked , a casualty profile is created and checked with the search manual before teams are briefed and sent on their way to search.

Search teams are updated and checked everyone 15 minutes and process marked on a map.

Thankfully 40 minutes into the search the missing person is found with a broken leg and first aid is given.

Thankfully this was just an exercise but the team continues to train in search planning and searching.
