RESCUE TECHNICIAN

A "Rescue Technician." Not a title to be taken lightly.

"To respond to technical search and rescue incidents, to identity hazards, use equipment, and apply advanced techniques specified in this standard necessary to coordinate, perform, and supervise technical search and rescue incidents."

Qualified "Techs" need to pass Awareness and Rescue Operations in one or more of almost 20 different disciplines.
