USAR General Awareness Training Module
An introductory training module for general USAR awareness has been developed by the New Zealand Fire Service in collaboration with MCDEM and EMQUAL, drawing on the inputs of USAR specialists and CDEM Response Team members. The purpose of the module is to provide an awareness-level introduction to USAR arrangements, for multi-agency emergency responders. Note that this training module is not part of the RAPID programme.
