ICE-SAR chooses award winning Snæfell Jacket
Iceland’s 18,000-strong search and rescue organisation, ICE-SAR, is respected through-out the world for its expertise and dedication. Whether its members are saving unwitting tourists from situations like the Eyjafjallajokull volcanic eruption or are halfway around the world searching for victims of devastating events like the Haitian earthquake, ICE-SAR is always ready to assist. Recognised as the world’s largest volunteer search and rescue organisation, ICE-SAR traces its origins to 1918 when the Westman Island Rescue Team (Björgunarfélag Vestmannaeyja) was established. The organisation’s history has always been closely intertwined with 66°NORTH’s own past. In fact, both were established with the very same purpose in mind – to protect and ensure the well-being of Iceland’s fishermen.
