These incidents can be caused by a variety of natural events (i.e., earthquakes, floods, tornados, or hurricanes) that cause widespread damage to a variety of structures, mass transportation accidents with multiple victims, or single site events such as excavation collapse or confined space rescue operations involving only a few victims. The DHS/FEMA US&R Field Operations Guide (FOG) has been developed to support response resources during training and on missions.
