Last June 18, the Search and Rescue Project successfully held its second Use Case (UC5 – VICTIMS TRAPPED UNDER RUBBLES) in Limoges/La Souterraine (France). The Use Case was hosted and led by International Emergency Firefighters (PUI) with the objective to test Search and Rescue Project components & technologies in 4 sites simulating incidents (victims buried under the slab, trapped in a car under rubbles or under a bus). Beyond the technical aspects, the event had a very significant impact in terms in dissemination and communication. The French National Television (France 3) was present on-site and did two interviews of project partners for the news. Finally, the UC became the cover of the French Regional Newspaper “Le Populaire”. These materials are available at the bottom of the page.
