SAR Course Starts in RACVIAC


A two-day “Search and Rescue – On-Scene Coordinator Course”, jointly organized by RACVIAC – Centre for Security Cooperation and the Croatian National Protection and Rescue Directorate, started in RACVIAC on 27th September 2017.

“SAR On-Scene Coordinator Course” is a tailor-made activity designed for “a person designated to coordinate search and rescue operations within a specified area” especially when two or more SAR units are working together on the same mission.

More specifically, the activity will focus on the ways how to explore the concrete needs of each participating SAR institution related to the general role of the On-Scene Coordinator (OSC), the OSC’s role in a mass rescue operation, including communication with the casualties, the Search Mission Coordination, and SAR facilities on scene. In addition, this activity will also focus on identifying and listing the potential needs of the countries and encourage development of regional and cross-border cooperation through SAR operations.
