¿Que son los Equipos USAR?

USAR (Búsqueda y Rescate Urbano, por sus siglas en inglés) involucra la localización, extracción y estabilización inicial de personas atrapadas en un espacio confnado o debajo de escombros como resultado de un colapso estructural repentino de gran escala como un sismo.

La meta de las operaciones de búsqueda y rescate es rescatar el mayor número de víctimas atrapadas en el menor tiempo posible, al tiempo que se minimiza el riesgo a los rescatistas.
