Enhancing capabilities and increasing interoperability to save lives

The Search and Rescue Middle East Summit will gather international experts from the search and rescue community, including members from regional Search and Rescue (SAR) teams, Rescue Coordination Centers (RCCs) and the public sector. This platform will allow participants to discuss the latest strategies, developments and technological advancements for enhancing SAR capabilities in the Middle East region.

The summit will cover current challenges that SAR organisations are facing:

  • Increasing coordination and interoperability of SAR operations
  • Rapid response during operations to ensure lives are saved
  • International cooperation for effective mass rescue missions
  • Integrating RCCs into existing emergency response structures
  • Optimising regional RCCs for more standardised and global communication

The objective is to develop, promote and share best practices with like-minded professionals engaged in SAR operations. The summit will also showcase success stories and, most importantly, provide opportunities for collaboration and cooperation between stakeholders.

Top reasons to attend Search and Rescue Middle East:

  • Engage in discussions with international experts on the most critical SAR issues through interactive discussion sessions
  • Network with several international and national organisations involved in SAR operations
  • Learn about international strategies and guidelines that increase rapid response coordination
  • Understand the importance of standard procedures for effective SAR response in global disasters

"This is an extremely important conference. Large emergencies and disasters at sea often require more than a single nation to handle with its own assets. Sub-regional integration is therefore of utmost importance."
Captain Jens-Adamsen, Royal Danish Air Force

I believe this conference to be a fantastic opportunity to share knowledge and experiences from some of the worst disasters over recent years. This sharing of information will help to prepare individuals and teams to either directly or indirectly save more lives following incidents of major structural collapse.
Sean Moore, UK ISAR National Coordinator
