Third Circular for the 12th European Cave Rescue Meeting, Casola Valsenio, Italy 2018, in pdf format.

Introduction

The aim of this year’s European Cave Rescue Meeting is to improve the perception of European Cave Rescue Association in a wider caving public. Therefore, this year’s meeting will be organized together with the big caving meeting in Casola Valsenio – Speleopolis.

Since the 1st ECRA meeting we work hard to achieve stronger collaboration and cohesion inside group. In this moment, altogether 19 organizations from 16 different European countries are ECRA members. Thanks ECRA is strong collaboration inside Europe between different cave rescue services already reality.

Cave rescuers are cavers, the main “power” that pushes ECRA forward. However, we have the impression that the wider caving publicity is not enough informed, what ECRA is really about, what has already been done to improve cave rescuing and safety in caving.

This year we saw a great opportunity at the notable annual meeting of the Italian caving federation (Societa speleological Italiana) in Casola Valsenio, where more than 2000 cavers worldwide will attend, to be there and to open our door to cavers.

The ECRA commissions (Technical, Medical and Cave-diving) will organize workshops on following topics:

  1. Highly specific and professional topics for cave rescuers as we do every year.
  2. Achievements in each field with some important remarks for safe caving for wider caver public.
  3. We will discuss about some important issues as being part of EU civil security, ECRA web, cave rescue education, joint international exercises, cave rescue services in case of big earthquakes/catastrophes.

As special guest we allow us to announce Chris Jewell. He is one of the divers, who have been directly involved as rescue divers in Thailand. He will talk about the experiences during the spectacular and successful rescue of the young soccer team, captured in a water flooded cave.
