AKUT Search and Rescue Association

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

AKUT Search and Rescue Association (Turkish: AKUT Arama Kurtarma Derneği) is a non-governmental and volunteer organization in Turkey, which was established in 1996 by a group of mountaineers. The association has established 27 teams in different regions of Turkey and has participated in more than 1000 search and rescue operations in and out of Turkey. It's also a member of the International Rescue Dogs Organization and United Nations' International Search and Rescue Advisory Group (INSARAG).

In 2011 the association participated in INSARAG's classification event and since then it's a "medium search and rescue group".
