GOODYEAR, Ariz. — The International Public Safety Association (IPSA) is seeking public input as it readies the second edition of its Rescue Task Force best practices guide.
The organization is accepting feedback on its Rescue Task Force Best Practices Guide Version I through June 30, 2018 for potential inclusion in its second edition of the guide, according to a press release.
“While there are several existing, valuable and recent studies that address unique components of ASHEs/MCIs, there is a lack of research and readily available information about how agencies can create an effective integrated, cross-disciplinary response to dynamic ASHEs/MCIs,” the IPSA writes.
“The International Public Safety Association’s Rescue Task Force Committee, comprised of practitioner, subject matter experts who convene regularly to discuss ASHEs/MCIs, debriefings, response strategies and best practices, came together to share their lessons learned and expertise to create the International Public Safety Association’s Rescue Task Force Best Practices Guide Version I. This committee is charged with reviewing the best practices guide on an annual basis and release new versions as rescue task force tactics and operations evolve.”
