COVID-19 procedures for BSAR members


In the event of a search call-out, please do not attend:

  • If you, your close family or a member of household have (or have recently had) any respiratory infection or symptoms
  • If you or a household member are currently required to self-isolate
  • You have a medical condition that is an additional risk factor with COVID-19

If you do attend a search call-out:

  • Bring a personal supply of soap, alcohol hand sanitiser, wipes, disposable gloves, self-seal rubbish bags
  • BSAR will provide alcohol hand sanitiser at the equipment store and on bus transport
  • Social distancing will be implemented on the bus and during search operations as much as possible
