When a natural or man-made disaster strikes us the first thing we need to know is to survive the initial onslaught. We need to be prepared for eventualities and we need survival skills to save ourselves and others.
Search and Rescue operations have always played a major role in disaster management. Search and rescue operations cannot be done by amateurs, it needs technical expertise. It can be rendered by an individual or a group of specially trained personnel. The Rescue team is trained to attend to causalities under adverse conditions, where life is at threat.
Dogs are also trained to carry out search operations.
