The Australia 1 Disaster Assistance Response Team (AUS-1 DART) successfully completed their second IER from 20-23 August 2018. This IER was only the second to be completed using the 2018 checklist including the use of KOBO for information management.

The exercise was conducted under clear blue skies and we had the opportunity to invite international participants from Singapore, United States of America, and New Zealand to participate in the exercise as part of the multinational UCC component.

Classifiers from seven countries participated, with Sean Moore (UK ISAR) undertaking the Lead Classifier position, and Dewey Perks (OFDA) representing the INSARAG Secretariat.

The AUS-1 team would like to thank all classifiers and international participants for their professional assistance during the exercise, with a special mention to our mentor, Mr Arjan Stam (NL USAR) for his ongoing and consistent support over the past years.

CONGRATULATIONS!
