Wide Area Search: TEEX (PER-213)

The Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX), a member of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC), will be instructing the 3-day DHS approved training course entitled, "Wide Area Search” (PER-213).

COST: None, but please preregister as seating is limited.


The discipline applies to a vast number of critical situations including natural disasters or terrorist incidents. Participants are instructed in practical search methods and skills so they can perform systematic searches over a large affected area. The training includes challenging exercises that mirror real life scenarios. The three-day long event concludes with an in-depth exercise that requires participants to utilize the skills gained during the course.

The trainers delivering the course are knowledgeable, experienced emergency responders who have actively utilized wide area search techniques during some of the Nation’s largest and most challenging operations, such as Hurricanes Katrina, Ike, Gustav and Rita, the Space Shuttle Columbia recovery operation, and many other incidents that required these same comprehensive strategies.
