  1. US&R Marking Systems • Four Systems: • Structure/Hazards Marking • Indicates structural condition of buildings • Indicates hazards present • Main Entrance Search Marking • Indicates if victims are inside structure • Provides search team accountability • Interior Search Marking • Indicates which rooms or areas victims are in • Victim Marking • Indicates specific location of victims

  2. Structure/Hazards Markings 9/12/09 1310 hours HM - nat. gas BDC – R301 Make a large (2’ x 2’) square box with orange spray paint on the outside of the main entrance to the structure. Put the date, time, hazardous material conditions, and team or company identifier outside the box on the right hand side. This information should be made with lumber crayon/ chalk. Structure is accessible and safe for search and rescue operations. Damage is minor with little danger of further collapse. 9/12/09 1310 hours HM – none BDC - R301

  3. Structure/Hazards Markings Structure is significantly damaged. Some areas are relatively safe, but other areas may need shoring, bracing, or removal of falling and collapse hazards 9/12/09 1310 hours HM - nat. gas BDC - R301 Structure is not safe for search or rescue operations. May be subject to sudden additional collapse. Remote search ops may proceed at significant risk. If rescue ops are undertaken, safe haven areas and rapid evacuation routes should be created. 9/12/09 1310 hours HM - nat. gas BDC – R301 Arrow located next to a marking box indicates the direction to a safe entrance into the structure, should the marking box need to be made remote from the indicated entrance.

  4. Main Entrance Search Marking WHEN YOU ENTER: Search Team 9-19-09 Date of Entry Identifier BDC R-73 0916 hrs. Orange spray paint, 2’ long Time of entry All writing in lumber crayon or chalk

  5. Main Entrance Search Marking WHEN YOU EXIT: Date & time search team exited the structure 9-19-09 Complete Search 0928 hrs. BDC R-73 0916 hrs. RATS Hazards Total victims still inside structure. V = Live V = Dead X = No victims 2-V 3-V Orange Spray Paint, 2’ x 2’

  6. Main Entrance Search Marking WHEN YOU EXIT: 9-19-09 0924 hrs. Date & time search team exited the structure Incomplete Search BDC R-73 0916 hrs. Hazards RATS Total victims still inside structure. V = Live V = Dead X = No victims 2-V 3-V Add circle for incomplete search

  7. Interior Search Marking EACH ROOM, AREA, or FLOOR: When you enter When you exit Identify any hazards Orange Spray Paint, 2’ x 2’ Identify any victims

  8. Victim Marking Potential Victim Search team identifier BDC R-91 Orange spray paint, 2’x 2’

  9. Victim Marking Confirmed Live Victim(s) BDC R-91 2 Total Number of live victims
