    Nice portable resource. Link to ICS forms does not work.

    Formatting for an IPad needs a rework. The lost person profile is handy to have, but of course you can get electronic copies elsewhere; paper is still OK too. The logistics section is more than week. This is a good idea that needs more work.

    I am very happy to see this finally come to the mobile platform. The mobile version looks great on the iPhone and works great. This is a must have for all SAR responders and search managers.
