Since the fall of 2014, Elkland Search and Rescue has been working to improve their Incident Command functionality.
We have been having multiple drills and table top scenario’s to improve our skills. Part of becoming more proficient, also includes working with the Elk County Emergency Management Task Force Communications trailer, and making sure all of the equipment interacts between the Elkland SAR Mobile Command Vehicle and the Communications Trailer. On February 22 of 2015, Elkland Search and Rescue members spent the day working with Mike McAllister of the Elk County Emergency Management 911 Center making sure that everything was interoperable. That day also included using table top exercises to teach Elkland members how the trailer equipment works and how to use the equipment to deal with an emergency situation. We would like to thank Mike for spending the day with us, and look forward to being able to use the equipment to help deal with an emergency situation!
