USAR in South Australia is a trained group of people from many organisations. Some volunteers, some paid staff.

The courses (I believe) are to the national Public Safety standards.

USAR equipment is stored in a few places and some members were deployed to Christchurch NZ for the earthquake recently.

Contact info can be found at (note two entries for SA) http://www.ema.gov.au/www/emaweb/emaweb.nsf/Page/FundingandGrants_Projects_UrbanSearchandRescue(USAR)Contacts
