Hurricanes and Urban Search and Rescue

The US Naval Institute Proceedings had a recent post, “Hurricanes: The Coast Guard’s Growing Responsibility” By Lieutenant Noah Miller, U.S. Coast Guard, September 2020.

This led me to an earlier article, “The Coast Guard Needs Urban SAR Assets” by Boatswain’s Mate First Class Michael Buchanan, U.S. Coast Guard, August 2019; then to “Now Hear This—Coast Guard on the Crest of Climate Change” by Lieutenant Angel Kwok, U.S. Coast Guard, January, 2019.

Two appeals like this from the deck plates suggests we probably need to do something more about urban search and rescue.

Apparently there is some action being taken: “New Flood Response Training Finishes Its Inaugural Course”
