2. ESTABLISH CLOSE LIASON WITH OTHER AGENCIES.
3. PREPARE A SAR PLAN
4. ESTABLISH RCCs.
5. ENSURE OPERATIONS CONFORM WITH NATIONAL SAR MANUAL.
6. CONDUCT SAR.

8. REPORT RESULTS TO THE PARENT OPERATING COMMAND.
IEPEECSR
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR PLANNING THE SAR MISSION?
(SMC)
SAR MISSION COORDINATOR
WHAT FUNCTION DOES THE RCC PERFORM DURING A SAR MISSION?
SAR COORDINATOR

THE OSC
Onscene commander
The SAR organization is composed of the:
(6 positions)
1. SC
2. SMC
3. RCC
4. RSC
5. OSC
6. SRUs
State the required advanced notice the SRU should provide to the OSC prior to arrival on scene.
15 Minutes
List the five response stages.
(AIPOC)
Awareness
Initial Actions
Planning
Operations
Conclusion

Documentation
O
R
C
E
D
List the three emergency phase classifications.
Uncertainty
Alert
Distress
Define datum.
Datum is defined as "the most probable location of the search object corrected for movement over time".
State the best source of information on total water current.
DMB (datum marker buoy)
State the forces involved in determining total water current.
Sea current
Wind current
Reversing tidal current
Lonshore Current
River current
Lake Current
Surt & Rip Current
7 currents
Define leeway.
Leeway (LW) is the movement through the water caused by winds blowing against the exposed surfaces of the search object.
Define track spacing.
The distance between two adjacent parallel search legs.
List the three on scene SAR frequencies.
282.8

123.1
State the type of ELT/EPIRB
s which use a coded ID.
406
Select the assignment responsible for deploying of the Search Action Plan (SAP).
SMC
Select the required time interval for SITREP submission.
At least once daily.
A Parallel (P) search pattern should be used when:
The search area is large.
There is equal probability of target being anywhere in the search area.
Datum information is fair.
uniform coverage is desired throughout the search area.
A Creeping Line (C) search pattern should be used when:
The search area is large.
Uniform coverage is desired.
Datum is fair.
and there is more chance the target being in one end of the search area than the other.
An Expanding Square (S) search pattern is used when:
Datum is established within close limits and uniform coverage is desired.
A Sector (V) search pattern is used when:
Datum is established with s high degree of confidence and the target is difficult to detect.
A Trackline (T) search is used when:
The only information available is the search targets known or projected trackline.
State the three correction factors you use to determine corrected sweep width.
Weather
fatigue
aircraft speed
State the correct formula for determining coverage factor.
C=W/S
State the items you should consider when selecting a search pattern.
1. accuracy of datum
2. size and detectability of target
3. size and shape of search area
4. Time available for searching
5. number and type of SRUs.
6. enroute and onscene weather
7. navigational ability of the SRUs.
8. desired POD
List the characteristics of the SRU best qualified to be an OSC.
Long endurance
Excellent comms capablilty
Knowledgeable crew
Adequate staffing
State the information the OSC should pass to the SMC in the first SITREP.
Onscene weather conditions
Define "false alarm".
A false alarm is a case where the subject reported to be in distress is confirmed not to be in distress and not to be in need of assistance.
Define "hoax".
A Hoax is a case where information is conveyed with the intent to deceive.
