Database for managing search and rescue team information

E-GADS! (Electronic Ground Search and rescue Administrative Database System) is a Web-based database that lets ground search and rescue teams track membership, certifications, search reports, events, and training records. It is in both English and French. The package is currently based on Canadian geographic data and NSS (National Search and Rescue Secretariat) categorization codes, but can be customized for other languages and data. It is used in New Brunswick, Canada, by the New Brunswick Ground Search and Rescue Association as well as police and government. This implementation (SAR Team Online) has data on the province's (roughly) 500 volunteer searchers and 100+ searches from the past three years.
