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.

Did you know that vessels of opportunity can play an important role in Arctic search and rescue operations? Ships that happen to be in the area can often be the first to arrive on the scene to assist another vessel in distress. To make the most of this resource, search and rescue entities and vessel operators need to train on working together in the case on an emergency. ARCSAR is facilitating such dialogue in a number of forums. On December 2-3, expedition cruise operators, SAR responders researchers and other stakeholders will gather for the fifth year in a row for a Joint Search and Rescue Tabletop Exercise.

Good communication is essential in an emergency. When you call for help, who will pick up the phone on the other line? Do they understand how you operate, the challenges you face and the resources you have at your disposal? Do you understand which information you should provide to help responders assess the situation, and what is expected of you in your current situation? Several search and rescue tabletop exercises has shown that increased dialogue and information flow between SAR responders and the maritime industry can enhance preparedness in the Arctic. ARCSAR provides a platform for knowledge exchange for practitioners, providers, researchers and other stakeholders. Learn more and become involved here: arcsar.eu/#start-innovating
