Grimpday 2013, the international challenge for search and rescue in hazardous environments
Grimpday is an international challenge that brings together search and rescue teams from around the world (firefighters, civil defense, military, and police). The event took place in Namur, Belgium, where teams competed against each other through exercises involving the unique elements related to search and rescue in hazardous environments. This event was created in 2006 by members of Namur’s regional fire department. The 2013 edition took place on Saturday, June 8, 2013, in the beautiful Belgian city. Petzl is proud to support this initiative that reinforces the development of effective techniques for rescues in hazardous environments.
