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.

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.
