PURPOSE: This course uses ICS-100 as the basis for integrating the search function, and recognized texts to
develop the search planning process. The 2-day course focuses on the planning elements of the search function,
both before and during searches. The course introduces key concepts which, when properly applied, maximize
the efficiency of the search. The student is taken through the pre-plan process, victim profiling, determining
best search strategies using available resources and, documentation. Though some topics overlap with SCISAR
Command, the classroom exercises are planning intensive rather than managerial.

development of an operational pre-plan; Planning data/searching data; Interview and investigation; Lost person
behavior and victim profiling; Impact of weather and terrain on victim and searchers; Theory of search
probabilities (area, detection and cumulative); Use of maps and search segmentation; SAR resources; and
