Nebraska Task Force 1 (NETF1)
The FEMA US&R Response System development is based upon providing a coordinated response to disasters in the urban environment. Special emphasis is placed on the capability to locate and extricate victims trapped in collapse buildings, primarily of reinforced concrete construction.
An important concept of the task force is for all members to be sufficiently cross-trained in their alternate functions and capabilities. this is ensure depth of capability, and integrated task force operations, during search and rescue missions. By design, there are two personnel assigned to each identified task force position for the rotation and relief of personnel. This allows for 24 hours, round-the-clock, task force operation.
