Innovation and Knowledge Exchange 2, Fifth joint Arctic SAR TTX and Workshop, Reykjavik, Iceland

UPDATE!
Due to COVID-19, the event has been postponed until further notice. We will keep you updated via the website or the social media should the situation change. Thank you for understanding!

Since it was first organized in 2016, the Joint Arctic SAR Workshop and TTX has established itself as the most important forum for exchange and joint training for SAR entities and the Arctic expedition cruise industry. The event allows participants to engage in frank discussions and gain valuable insight into the perspective and operational mode of the entities they will deal with in the event of an emergency. This joint SAR event gathers expedition cruise operators, Arctic search and rescue (SAR) responders and other relevant stakeholders for a workshop and tabletop exercise (TTX) aimed at enhancing dialogue and cooperation between the cruise industry and the SAR sector in the Arctic. The event also features presentations from practitioners and researchers with updates on the latest developments in maritime preparedness, policy, technology and SAR  cooperation.

Participation is open for members of AECO, Arctic SAR entities, ARCSAR partners and relevant authorities. Capacity is limited and early registration is recommended. Other interested can send an email to aeco@aeco.no.

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!"
