Search and Rescue Europe 2014 in Copenhagen - free passes available for SAR professionals

Published:  06 December, 2013

Interagency and international SAR cooperation forms the cornerstone of the Search and Rescue Europe symposium being held in Copenhagen 7-9 April 2014.

Alongside greater integration, this event brings together leading SAR practitioners from across Europe and beyond, to tackle the issue of how to ensure that the best life saving standards are practiced while at the same time trying to increasingly balance cost against required capability.

Highlights include
* Keynote address from Major General Nielsen, the Head of Denmark’s Arctic Command, who will address the challenge of search and rescue in the High North whilst discussing the impact that the multi-national SAREX Greenland Sea exercise has had on preparedness for operations in such a remote environment
* Pan-European examination of differing approaches to Search and Rescue, including feedback and unique insights into the most successful life-saving operations of the past year from organisations including: the RNLI, SASEMAR, JRCC Estonia, JRCC Norway and the Polish Maritime Search and Rescue Service
* Examination of the most innovative search and rescue technologies and the benefits they offer, including Unmanned Systems and social media coupled with an in-depth analysis of the latest advancements in training
* Engaging discussions and networking sessions on how to increase cooperation and integration within national SAR programmes and across international borders
