IEC: USAR South Africa

The USAR-South Africa completed the INSARAG External Classification as a Medium USAR Team. The team conducted a 36-hour exercise during which they demonstrated their capabilities to conduct rescue mission respecting the INSARAG global standards set in the Guidelines. The classifiers team presented their report to the team with a series of recommendations for the team to implement and the INSARAG Secretariat handed over the INSARAG certificate during an official ceremony attended by the Head of the National Disaster Management Center, as well as dignitaries from the international community. This was the first time the INSARAG classifiers team counted on the participation of three female out of eight classifiers, providing a good example for the INSARAG network of gender balance.
