ARCSAR ANNUAL WORKSHOP

Goal of ARCSAR Annual Workshop is to interact with industry, academia, and other providers of innovative solutions outside of the consortium, with a view to assessing the feasibility of ARCSAR first project year findings. The workshop will include presentations on the first year’s project findings. Then an interactive discussion will follow with panelists and audience on the next steps and key issues to be taken into account by ARCSAR during the forthcoming project years, so that the project will serve the Arctic and North-Atlantic Security and Emergency Preparedness Network joint measures in most fruitful way. All are welcome to join the discussion, debates and providing solutions for the future cooperation measures.


INNOVATION AND KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE EVENT
WORKSHOP ON INNOVATIVE EMERGENCY RESPONSE EDUCATION, TRAINING AND KNOWLEDGE SHARING WITH SME’S, LOCAL COMMUNITIES AND VOLUNTARY ORGANIZATIONS

With growing business activity such as tourism in the Atlantic and polar regions, SAR agencies as well as local communities and emergency response volunteer groups have come up with innovative solutions, tools and procedures in dealing with emergency preparedness and response.
The ARCSAR project has recognized that there is a need for more opportunities for sharing knowledge and having discussions on learning through involvement of local communities, voluntary organizations, companies, and SAR services.

The workshop invites ARCSAR network partners and other relevant stakeholders to discuss mutual opportunities, best practices and share experiences connected to technological and competence development, local knowledge, community and voluntary organization involvement in emergency preparedness, network development, and cooperation concepts.

Learning from real life survival: NZ Antarctica
The Russian fishing vessel “Sparta” in 2011 got hull damage and took in water. The vessel had 32 people on board, and it was not built for operating in Polar waters. The NZ Air Force flew over with their Hercules plane to drop equipment in order for the crew to fix the damages to the hull. Two drops of equipment were necessary, as the first did not contain the needed equipment. One of the learning points was to ask more questions in order to make sure that kits contain everything that is needed for a specific situation. The whole operation took about one month in total and all lives were saved. 📷Royal NZ Air Force

True innovation for first responders being tested in UK. Would be interesting to find out how the equipment holds in cold ANA conditions.

"The Great North Air Ambulance reached out and constructed a typical rescue scenario. Calling in helicopter support for each and every case isn't possible or practical which leaves vehicle & foot approach. What if the Critical Care first responder could locate and stabilise the casualty within minutes of vehicle arrival. Well in this exercise we did it in 90 seconds vs the 25 minutes of arduous climb!"
