More than 500 of the world’s best rescuers have gathered on the Croatian island of Brač for the annual Ikar Cisa 2013 conference. It is the first time that the international conference, which ends on 19 October, will be held in Bol, on the island of Brač.
The Croatian Mountain Rescue Service (CRMS) will host the conference, and the main focus of the event will be on helicopter rescuing methods. During the 4 days of the conference, participants will have the chance to participate in several demonstration sessions, theoretical presentations and showcases.
“Although we live in a country that does not have high mountains, the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service has developed its maximum capacity and rescue techniques and as such is the vanguard of the region and is a proud member of IKAR-CISA that contributes to the development of the world’s mountain rescue service,” said Vinko Prizmić, Head of CRMS.
The conference is held under the auspices of Ivo Josipović, President of the Republic of Croatia.
