This presentation about Fairfax County’s International Urban Search and Rescue Team will build on a previous presentation. It will include additional detail on search methodology and tools, including cameras and listening devices.  Fairfax County sponsors an international urban search and rescue task force that is recognized throughout the United States and the world as a leader in catastrophic event mitigation, readiness, response, and recovery techniques. Join us to learn about the history and mission of Virginia Task Force 1. Since 1986, task force members have been at the forefront in assisting in the development of response systems both domestically and internationally. This assistance, supplied to the US Agency for International Development’s Office of US Foreign Disaster Assistance (USAID/OFDA), the United Nations, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), ensures that the world’s first-responder community is prepared for its arduous duties.
