Increasing Complexity or Number of Objectives
- Defining the seams between Search and Rescue and Personnel
Recovery removes the myth of the “continuity of rescue”
- Dividing line for funding and tasking is ESF #9
US Civil SAR System “The Olive”

Routine SAR is considered day-to-day operations performed by federal
agencies—Dept of Homeland Security/ FEMA, USCG, DOI/ NPS and
DOD
Mass Rescue Operations (MROs): infrequent operations that require the
rescue of large numbers of people
They are considered “routine” SAR, but do not meet the threshold of a
catastrophic incident (i.e. airline plane crash)
A Catastrophic Incident SAR (CISAR): any natural or manmade incident,
including terrorism, that results in extraordinary levels of mass
casualties, damage, or disruption, severely effecting the population,
infrastructure, environment, economy or govt functions.
CISAR is qualified when the response is associated with a presidential
declaration and ESF-9 is established.

No line between “routine” SAR and MROs: unique to each agency, circumstance,
and type of SAR (land, aeronautical, maritime, etc.).
Black line surrounds Catastrophic Incident SAR. Presidential declaration and ESF-9
established is required.
Closer to center: lower probability/larger response

Full Spectrum Rescue
•
AFPD 10-45 states “The United States Air Force (USAF) will provide support to civil SAR to
the fullest extent practicable, and on a non-interference basis with primary military duties”
•
•
DoDI 3003.01 is the parent guidance
AFRCC is an “ask not task agency”
– Responsible for 48 states and for assistance to Canada and Mexico
– Voting member of multiple counsels for future planning and global rescue
– Coordinates routine SAR missions (ex: lost hiker, missing aircraft)
• Missions are below the DSCA or declared emergency/ESF#9 threshold
– No forces assigned
• Coordinate nearest, most capable federal assets to assist state governments
•
AFRCC does not provide funding for missions to include replacement of expendables
– Per the Stafford Act
• Tasking and funding occur with ESF #9 Declaration
• AFRCC executes routine SAR below the ESF #9 threshold (action within DSCA is covered in
DoDD 3025.18)
– Funding comes from unit O&M
• ACC/A3J may be able to reimburse some areas on a case-by-case basis (this is typically UTC
expendables and Per Diem)

Full Spectrum Rescue
•
•
AFRCC Mission #
– Provides legal authority to Wg/CC to use forces for civil SAR outside the scope of, or in
lieu of commander’s immediate response authorities
– Depending on the scenario, the AFRCC, USCG, or the state may be in charge of the
mission
– The AFRCC is not the IC, it will be assigned on a scenario dependent basis
– The Wg/CC maintains OPCON of the forces during AFRCC missions
AFRCC CAPES
– 24/7 Operations
– Provide mission number and acquire federal assets in addition to rescue forces (ex:
AAR tankers)
– Provide 406 beacon data, CSEL data, and airborne reports for 121.5 beacons
• If available, can coordinate CAP aircraft to DF 121.5 beacons
– Provide cell phone and radar forensics
– Attain drift calculations from USCG
– Establish TFRs
– Coordinate COAs for UAS
– Attain JAG guidance for missions
– Unable to coordinate diplomatic clearances
