Participants in the Search and Rescue training course

THE GIBRALTAR Port Authority hosted a Search and Rescue (SAR) training course for its own staff and other response agencies in Gibraltar as part of a collaborative initiative to enhance Gibraltar’s response to SAR incidents in British Gibraltar Territorial Waters.

Operations staff from the Port Authority, the Marine Units of the Royal Gibraltar Police, the Gibraltar Defence Police, HM Customs and the Queen’s Harbour Master attended the 5-day course at the new University’s campus with the training being provided by Tim Parker, the head of SARtacs, an emergency response and search and rescue training and consultancy business based in the UK. 

The bespoke training included SAR administration, mission planning and on-scene coordination. The course also provided daily syndicate exercises with the aim of teaching participants to effectively manage the response to maritime search and rescue incidents.
