HWF Responders will be provided with communications, navigation, first aid, SAR Ready Kits, PPE and incident specific equipment for each deployment.

Every emergency incident will be unique and will therefore demand a customized HWF response by SARVAC. This includes the number of Responders to be deployed, the location, topography, time of year, weather, Responder skills and qualifications, communications infrastructure and Responder equipment (both general and specialized). 


SARVAC is building the operational structure and inventory to meet these needs, with Ready Kits, communications gear, personal navigation equipment, first aid kits and supplies, select facilities,  personal protection and some specialized equipment required for MRG deployments.
