Dear Colleagues,

The United States FEMA National USAR Response System recently developed a guidance note to advise teams on national response protocols. The team of Mr. Fred Endrikat, Chief of FEMA's USAR Branch, Dr. Anthony Macintyre and Mr. Dewey Perks, our respective Medical and Training Working Group Chairs, have taken the FEMA version and adapted it to be applicable for the INSARAG global network. 

We like to put on record our sincere thanks and gratitude to the drafting of the document by the United States colleagues for the benefit of the international community.

We would also thank Mexico, Colombia, France and Russia for the Spanish, French and Russian translations
