The Conference Committee is proud to launch the

Resilience in Search and Rescue
23 May 2018 - The Star Gold Coast, QLD

Christopher Austin, Conference Chair

As the Conference Chair, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2018 Australian & New Zealand Search & Rescue Conference. Now in its fourth year, this Conference continues to grow and build on its previous success.

Resilience is critical for the search and rescue (SAR) industry. Individually, it provides the basis for effective support, tools and strategies that assist in maintaining the personal wellbeing and mental health of SAR responders. At the community level, building resilience can better prepare those venturing into remote areas and strengthen relationships with emergency services. Organisationally, it enhances the ability to anticipate, prepare, and adapt to changing environments. It is for these reasons that ‘Resilience in Search and Rescue’ is the theme of this year’s Conference.

The 2018 Australian & New Zealand Search & Rescue Conference will discuss the evolution and future direction of SAR in our region and explore the new developments in technology that are challenging traditional assumptions of how search and rescue is conducted. It will also highlight case studies and lessons learned focussing on issues faced by SAR personnel, promote the sharing of new ideas and concepts, and review the latest innovations in training methodology.

We have lined up an exciting program of inspiring speakers and captivating presentations. Complemented with interactive forums, panel discussions, and networking functions, this will provide delegates with a significant learning opportunity.

On behalf of the Conference Committee, I would like invite you to join us in 2018 for what promises to be an exceptional event.
