Time-Saving App Offered for Search and Rescue Teams

Wisely, the U.S, Department of Homeland Security is promoting the sale of a Lost Person Behavior app ($9.99 at the iTunes Store) that would seem a godsend to searchers for missing persons. It’s been built around data from “over 150,000 missing person cases across the country,” and “provides guidance, tactical briefings, investigative questions, and statistics for over 40 different scenarios.” They include “lost hikers, hunters, children, missing vehicles, despondent individuals, demential patients and climbers.”

The app has been released by DHS’ Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) First Responders Group, and was “developed with the support of search and rescue teams around the nation.” It seems highly functional, should it be needed.
