Guidelines of search and rescue

  • Low technology keeps going when high technology fails
  • Nothing is certain!
  • BSAR members are able to adapt either themselves or other equipment to achieve the task at hand
  • The weather is always foul or on its way to becoming so
  • A search is always conducted in the most rugged part of Victoria
  • A search will always be on the corner of four map sheets
  • Radio communications are likely to be poor or non existant
