Faces of EU MODEX

What does EU MODEX mean to me? 

What I appreciate most is the opportunity to practice well-prepared and realistic exercises with very professional and high skilled teams. Since many contacts are made between individuals and teams during the exercises, it creates an extremely strong link when/if it becomes a reality.


What are my wishes for the future of EU MODEX? 

The possibility to share experience from real disasters/operations and share lessons learned taken from the field and put these in to upcoming exercises.

    Dear Sir,

    We are a Voluntary K9 USAR organisation (K-9 Urban Search and Rescue Malta). We had been setup for more than 10 years. We have 10 dogs with their own handlers and other Volunteers. My questions is, how can we become insarag certify? Can we invite an UN Insarag Instructor to test our setup to obtain the Insarag certification?
    We would appreciate your advise and should you wish further information please do not hesitate to contact us.
