The 14th International Cave Rescue Conference is going to take place in Ramales de la Victoria, Alto Asón, Cantabria, Spain from 6th to 9th June 2024.
This International Conference will provide a great opportunity to revitalize the work of the UIS Cave Rescue Commission (CRC) . We will be able to discuss and decide how to continue and develop our efforts in the area of Cave Rescue. The main goals of the CRC are to promote cave rescue and provide information to all UIS member countries. We plan to build closer relationships and collaboration among cave rescue organizations all through the world. We also plan to assist countries where more help is needed to make them more effective as first responders to cave accidents. This conference will provide an excellent opportunity to get to know each other better, learn from each other’s experiences, and strengthen international cooperation. We have been able to share the latest advances in cave diving, rescue management, medical services, and technical support. We will be able to learn from recent rescues throughout the world.
All cavers are invited to this conference. Our expertise in cave rescue will increase thanks to the practices and innovations of others. Rescue effectiveness requires the involvement of many members of the caving community. Cavers must be involved at all levels of the rescue operation, both above ground, and underground.
We hope that this conference will help everyone to have a safer experience in the underworld.
