Enhancing capabilities • Increasing interoperability • Saving lives

Better integration is the key to more effective SAR operations. In 2014, Search and Rescue Europe brings together leading SAR practitioners to discuss how we can move towards better integration between different SAR agencies.

Building on the success of 2013’s iteration, our 2014 event features over 90% new speakers and briefings to reflect just how much the SAR world has evolved over the past year.

Tackling issues ranging from the latest requirements for airborne SAR assets through to the latest in innovative life-saving training and techniques. This is a truly global forum dedicated to advancing the discussions begun in 2013 and moving the community a step closer to an effective, integrated, Search and Rescue capability.

So what’s new?

Naturally, SAR Europe will continue to provide you with a broad European analysis capabilities and strategic plans. Alongside this we will also bring you:

  • Insights into the diverse problems facing SAR operations in diverse regions – from the Arctic wilderness to the vast migration across the Mediterranean into Europe
  • The latest information on requirements and future plans for enhancing aerial SAR capabilities from Canada, Norway and the United Kingdom
  • Case studies from SAR agencies in emergent Europe nations and from outside of Europe – learn how other nations are enhancing their SAR provisions
  • An examination of the importance of social media to Search and Rescue – how can we capitalise on unique online communities to save lives?
  • Understanding of the importance of training for SAR operators both at the technical and inter-agency level. Only by improving the understanding of each agencies roles and responsibilities can we create a more effective SAR force
