Control measure

Have a communication strategy: Search

Control measure knowledge

Effective communications should be established with the search co-ordinator and the deployed crews. These are essential for a successful outcome to operations, both within the incident command structure where they are vital to the incident commander in ensuring that the current objectives and subsequent plan are appropriate, but also between safety officers and crews. If distances are adequate, verbal communications may be more appropriate during the dynamic stages of the incident.
