Emergency managers and first responders often refer to the window of time where a victim’s rescue greatly increases their chance of survival as the golden hour. Using low-power microwave radar to detect small movements from breathing and the heartbeat of a buried victim, FINDER (Finding Individuals for Disaster and Emergency Response) quickly directs rescuers to survivors, thereby allowing additional victims to be identified who might have otherwise been lost. In this session, we will review the resources & technology for finding & rescuing victims of disasters in time to save lives.
