                PHASE I – TECHNICAL RESCUE TEAM SELF-EVALUATION


                        DESCRIPTION OF SELF-EVALUATION
The Technical Rescue Team Self-Evaluation consists of the following two phases:

        Phase I – Team Self-Evaluation – format is included in this package and to be returned to
         Chief Gerald George, Technical Rescue Section Chair not later than March 1st, 2008.

        Phase II – On Site Peer Evaluations – two to three peer evaluators will visit each team to
         validate the team’s self-evaluation.

Note: The method of scoring described herein will be used for each of the above phases. It will enable
the State to consistently and continuously gauge a Team’s development and readiness, and determine
Teams immediately ready for response. In addition it will provide immediate feedback on a Teams
strengths and weaknesses.


                                      READINESS AREAS

Two areas of readiness will be evaluated:

        Operational Readiness – availability of a complement of deployable, trained, exercised,
         qualified personnel.

        Logistic Readiness – availability of equipment caches and other logistic resources to support
         response.

   1. OPERATIONAL READINESS

        Complement of Members fully trained to described requirements

   2. LOGISTICS READINESS

        Complement of cache equipment items
        Adequacy of transportation resources

                                                                                      Version 4/4/08
                      Indiana Urban Search & Rescue Response Program
                 PHASE I – TECHNICAL RESCUE TEAM SELF-EVALUATION


                                 OPERATIONAL READINESS
Operational Readiness assesses the availability of a complement of trained, qualified members,
immediately ready to respond. It is scored based on the factors described below:

Complement of fully trained members – The number of personnel on the technical rescue team in each
position, who have met all training requirements.

Complement of Fully Trained Members

An attachment to this Self-Evaluation lists the levels of training for each discipline and is based on
NFPA 1670 and NFPA 1006 respectively. This attachment should be used to determine the number of
fully trained members on the Team. In addition Team Leaders should continuously assess the readiness
training of their members in terms of attendance at meetings, completion of recurring training, including
re-certifications, fit testing and respirator testing.

                                  LOGISTICAL READINESS

Logistic Readiness assesses the availability of a complete equipment cache as well as other logistic
resources to support immediate response.


1. Full Complement of Cache Equipment Items

An attachment to this Self-Evaluation lists the minimum equipment needs for each discipline. These are
based on needs to provide an Operations Level or Technician Level response. (Trench Rescue, Confined
Space Rescue, Rope Rescue, Defensive Surface Water Rescue, Vehicle/Machinery Rescue, Structural
Collapse only at the Operations Level)

2. Adequacy of Transportation Resources

Teams should have a full complement of response ready transportation resources in place and available
for day-to-day incidents. These transportation resources should be of size and quantity to respond all
needed equipment of a given discipline or for multiple disciplines. In addition an adequate transportation
resource system would have the following characteristics:

      All vehicles continuously maintained and insured
      All vehicles housed in a safe, secure environment (preferably indoors)

                             COLLAPSE RESCUE BY NIMS TYPING

The Collapse Search & Rescue Type-4 (Basic) Operational Level is comprised of 6 people specially
trained and equipped to conduct safe and effective search and rescue operations at incidents involving
non-structural entrapment in non-collapsed structures.

The Collapse Search & Rescue Type-3 (Light) Operational Level is comprised of 10 people specially
trained and equipped to conduct safe and effective search and rescue operations at structure collapse
incidents involving the collapse or failure of Light Frame Construction and low angle or one-person load
rope rescue.

The Collapse Search & Rescue Type-2 (Medium) Operational Level is comprised of 30 people
specially trained and equipped to conduct safe and effective search and rescue operations at structure
collapse incidents involving the collapse or failure of Heavy Wall Construction, high angle rope
rescue (not including highline systems), confined space rescue (no permit required), and trench and
excavation rescue.

The Collapse Search & Rescue Type-1 (Heavy) Technician Level is comprised of 30 people specially
trained and equipped to conduct safe and effective search and rescue operations at structure collapse
incidents involving the collapse or failure of Heavy Floor, Pre-cast Concrete and Steel Frame
Construction, high angle rope rescue (including highline systems), confined space rescue (permit
required), and mass transportation rescue.

The Regional US&R Task Force Level (FEMA Type III) is comprised of 34 people specially trained
and equipped for large or complex Urban Search and Rescue operations. The multi-disciplinary
organization provides five functional elements that include Supervision, Search, Rescue, Medical, and
Logistics. The Regional US&R Task Force is totally self-sufficient for the first 24 hours.
Transportation and logistical support is provided by the sponsoring agency and may be supported by
the requesting agency.

State/National US&R Task Force (FEMA Type I) is comprised of 80 people specially trained and
equipped for large or complex Urban Search and Rescue operations. The multi-disciplinary
organization provides seven functional elements that include Supervision, Search, Rescue, Haz-Mat,
Medical, Logistics and Planning. The State/National US&R Task Force is designed to be used as a
"single resource." However, each element of the Task Force is modularized into functional components
and can be independently requested and utilized.

Urban Search and Rescue incidents may occur that will require rescue operations that exceed a
resource's identified capability. When the magnitude or type of incident is not commensurate with a
capability level, the IC will have the flexibility to conduct rescue operations in a safe and appropriate
manner using existing resources within the scope of their training and equipment until adequate
resources can be obtained or the incident is terminated.

        operations at structural collapse or failure incidents.
     Identification of five general construction categories, characteristics and expected behavior of
        each category in a collapse or failure situation.
     Identification of four types of collapse patterns and potential victim locations.
     Recognition of the potential for secondary collapse.
     Recognition of the general hazards associated with a structure collapse or failure situation and
        the actions necessary for the safe mitigation of those hazards.
     Procedures for implementing the structure/hazard marking system
     Procedures for conducting searches at non-collapsed structures using appropriate methods for the
        type of building configuration.
     Recognition and response to the emergency signaling system
     Procedures for implementing the search marking system
     Procedures for the extrication of easily accessible victims from non-structural entrapments
        involving minimal removal of debris and /or building contents.
     Procedures for providing disaster first aid medical care to victims.
     Members shall be trained to the Hazardous Materials First Responder Operations Level.

Collapse Search & Rescue Type-3 (Light) Operational Level
Personnel shall meet all Collapse Search & Rescue Type-4 (TRT Support) level training requirements.
In addition, personnel shall be trained in hazard recognition, equipment use and techniques required to
operate safely and effectively at structural collapse incidents involving the collapse or failure of Light
Frame Construction and low angle or one person load rope rescue as specified below:

      Personnel shall be trained to recognize, evaluate and communicate the unique hazards associated
       with the collapse or failure of Light Frame Construction. Training should include but not be
       limited to the following:
      Site safety, hazard assessment and personal protective equipment required for site.
      Recognition of the building materials and structural components associated with Light Frame
       Construction.
      Recognition of unstable collapse and failure zones of Light Frame Construction.
