International Elite Rescuers Exchange (IERE) Workshop
The workshop aims to gather emergency services personnel from different countries for a healthy exchange of training skills and knowledge. It enables participants to gain insights into one another's modus operandi, which will serve to enhance everyone's competencies in dealing with complex fire and rescue incidents.
Participants will be engaged through table-top exercises and share best practices from within their organizations. Fieldwork demonstrations will be conducted in addition to classroom discussions to facilitate a meaningful and thorough learning experience.
Through this workshop, participants should acquire a deeper appreciation of the operating norms in other countries. This will translate to better understanding, cooperation and interoperability amongst them when responding to international disasters.
