SAR Panel Discussion

Tuesday, October 1, 2013 – 3-4:30 pm

Dr. Smith will be participating in a Search and Rescue (SAR) Panel Discussion with John Gookin, Ph.D. from the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) and Will White, LCSW.

Many outdoor programs rely on external emergency response systems as the backbone of their field emergency response plan.  Do your instructors actually know what happens when they make that call, use their personal locator beacon, or set off an EPIRB?  Do you? This panel discussion will gather together experts from the SAR community to offer their thoughts. In addition to questions crafted by the moderator, there will be opportunity for you to pose questions to the panelists about search and rescue operations and pre-planning.
