GrimpDay’s 7th edition took place on May 12, 2012, in Belgium.
This international challenge brought together search and rescue teams from around the world.

 
One hundred and eighty search and rescue professionals (firefighters, military, police, etc.) from 30 teams met in Namur, Belgium. Each workshop focused on the specifics of search and rescue techniques in a hazardous environment. A flawlessly organized event and gorgeous weather made this edition a resounding success.
