Global Search & Rescue Excellence Awards


Our Headline Sponsor

The Global Search & Rescue Excellence Awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of search and rescue teams, volunteers, organisations and suppliers who work so tirelessly to ensure we can respond in someone’s moment of need.

The event celebrates those from around the world who have shown unstinting dedication to the search and rescue community and for teams and individuals who have really made a difference.

As the recent earthquake in Turkey and Syria demonstrated, the invaluable assistance provided by search and response teams is not only life-saving but brings the global community of first responders together to help improve response to future emergencies.

Recognising the outstanding contribution of individuals, teams and organisations to the invaluable role played by those on the frontline, the Global Search & Rescue Excellence Awards shines a spotlight on the unsung heroes responding to disasters and emergencies around the world.

Fire Knowledge, the publisher of FIRE magazine, and organiser of the highly regarded Excellence in Fire & Emergency Awards, is pleased to introduce this brand-new awards for 2024 which will showcase the close global community of search and rescue responders and recognise individual, team and organisational excellence.

To be held on October 4th at the fabulous One Great George Street, London, the Global Search & Rescue Excellence Awards will highlight the best in global response and celebrate frontline responders and those working tirelessly behind the scenes to improve disaster response and save lives.
