                                        ARE YOU INTERESTED?

Terrorism has required Civil Defence Forces, Emergency Services, NGO's and both local and national governments into a harsh examination of what exactly is effective Urban Search and Rescue, particularly with regard to resilience and the ability to sustain a Search and Rescue operation over many days and weeks in environments that pose multiple and on-going hazards and risks.

This symposium will seek to examine case studies, quantify lessons learned from around the world, suggest a strategy for the future by means of a global template and show the tactical resources and approaches currently available in the field of Urban Search and Rescue.

Speakers include Alun Evans (Head of Civil Resilience Directorate), Arjun Katocch and Joe Bishop (UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs), Professor Bill McGuire (Benfield Hazard Research Centre), Dewey Perks (US FEMA Task Force Commander), Iain Muir (UKFSSART Team Leader), Stefan Schmith (Danish Emergency Management Agency) and senior representatives of the DFID, International Red Cross, NCOP, MERLIN and ReSART.

This impressive range, experience and academic knowledge of the speakers assembled will produce the single most important symposium yet on UK soil; one not to be missed. S
