Managing the Inland Search Function
Written & Edited by Brett C. Stoffel and Robert C. Stoffel
This text serves agency personnel and volunteer responders routinely arriving as first on-scene at missing or lost person incidents and for the follow-on overhead staff for longer operations.  The book provides techniques for objective assessments, guidance for planning, and shows how to establish documentation regardless of incident length or complexity.  
Managing the Inland Search Function provides the essence of what the first-on-scene Incident Commander will initiate, manage and document for Search and Rescue incidents from initial response through suspending search operations and demobilization of resources. This reference provides a building-block foundation for both ongoing management of search operations and technical search planning for later operational periods.  Most searches resolve either using previously proven search planning tactics and management techniques described or the more complicated search techniques discussed for longer missions.   
Managing the Inland Search Function represents a comprehensive guide to pre-planning, operations in wilderness, rural and urban environments, managing external influences and after action tasks for Search and Rescue incidents in any jurisdiction.
