    SEARCH AND RESCUE

    Annual Report for 2014 Introduction In Oregon, the State assigns SAR incident numbers to all reported events. The requestor gets an incident number from the Oregon Emergency Response System (OERS). Reports of the incidents are entered into the SAR database maintained by the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) and used to generate the statistics in this report. Copyright, Reproduction, and Data Use The information in this report is not copyrighted. Reproduction and use of these statistics are free to all users. If you use or reproduce the data in this report, please credit the source. Data There are several sources for the data in this report. The primary comes from the County Sheriffs Offices who are the responsible agencies for the majority of the missions in the state. OEM generates its own data while locating missing aircraft and tracking down the source of electronic beacons (ELT and EPIRB) as it is the responsible agency for these events. Data on aircraft accidents and injuries comes from the National Transportation Safety Board. The data on Oregon deaths and suicides come from the Oregon Health Authority, Oregon Vital Statistics, Annual Report 2013, Volume 2. All maps were made using ESRI ArcMap 10.0 Individual agencies assisting on a mission usually provide their figures directly to the Incident Commander. If any agency did not report their mission data, its inclusion here is doubtful. In 2014, 90% of the reports were sent in; a good year. Charts and Graphs Each chart and graph in this report is named.
