Identify and discuss three (3) communications issues that in your opinion had a significantly negative impact on the quality of the response provided by search and rescue (SAR) (not general police, not overall command, not just medical, but just SAR assets) personnel during the first 3-4 days of operations in responding to the April 19, 1995 Oklahoma City Alfred Murrah federal building bombing.

Module 5 discusses communications issues during a terrorist incident. Identify and discuss three (3) communications issues that in your opinion had a significantly negative impact on the quality of the response provided by search and rescue (SAR) (not general police, not overall command, not just medical, but just SAR assets) personnel during the first 3-4 days of operations in responding to the April 19, 1995 Okalahoma City Alfred Murrah federal building bombing. You may discuss issues relating only to the search site, only local SAR teams or expand your scope outward to areas such as communications between local, state and federal SAR assets. You may discuss any aspect desired as long as it is limited to communications related issues and traditional SAR unit roles. Communications does not just mean radios.
