14 th International Cave Rescue Conference

14 th International Cave Rescue Conference

The 14th International Cave Rescue Conference is going to take place in Ramales de la  Victoria, Alto Asón, Cantabria / Spain from 6th to 9th June 2024.

Establish cooperation among cave rescue organizations of the UIS member countries and regional cave rescue organizations.

CRC has to create communication channels.

This meeting is organized by the Fundación Espeleosocorro Cántabro – ESOCAN on behalf of the UIS Cave Rescue Commission (CRC).

Cave rescue from cavers to cavers


Dear cave rescue team members,

I am pleased to be invited to the 14th International Cave Rescue Conference (ICRC) in Ramales de la Victoria/Cantabria/Spain from 6-9th June 2024.

The UIS Cave Rescue Commission (CRC) is one of the first commissions active since 1965. The activities of the commission go up and down with new generations of cavers and individual enthusiasts who want to share their national and regional experiences in cave rescue techniques internationally. In the present CRC conferences are held every four years in different countries and commission meetings are held on the occasion of ICSes. These meetings deal with various topics of rescue activities such as medicine, technology, communication, responsibility, insurance policy, law and other important aspects. The exchange of information and experience in rescue among UIS member countries.

Caves are everywhere on our planet and so they are open to visitors and cave explorations. Visiting a cave also increases the risk of accidents. Accidents in a cave are caused by various circumstances, from natural (e.g., falling rocks) to human error. Cave rescue teams must be trained, equipped and prepared for different situations, from deep mountain caves to narrow cave labyrinths.

The changing world, and the pandemic in particular, has had a major impact on the activities of UIS and its commissions, i.e., improved communication and international cooperation on karst and cave exploration, research, protection, and conservation, and it is time to improve international communication on cave rescue issues as well.

In collaboration with Fundación Espeleosocoro Cántabro, which is very experienced in organizing cave rescue camps and training meetings, the 14th International Conference is now organized with a wide program, including lectures and trainings, to present the news in cave rescue techniques and share experiences from the field.

The organizers of the 14th International Cave Rescue Conference (ICRC) offer not only a conference with an extensive program, but also an interesting social program. I am convinced that the participants will go home with many new ideas, an increase in knowledge and with an indelible memory of the conference.

I would like to thank the organizers for their efforts in organizing the conference and wish them a successful realization of the program!

Nadja Zupan Hajna, UIS President


 Dear Cave Rescuers,


The UIS Cave Rescue Commission (CRC) was founded in 1965 as one of the first three original Commissions of the UIS. The commission has worked well over the past decades. The CRC held conferences in several countries over the past four years and it also held meetings during the various International Congresses of Speleology (ICS).

Meeting during the last decade dealt with rescue issues including communication, insurance policy, legal concerns, medical training, and responsibility. The meetings provided an opportunity for the UIS members countries to share rescue information and experiences. The most recent conference was held in Vaumarcus/Switzerland in 2015. There was also a 2017 meeting in Sydney, Australia at the 17th ICS. Other activities were suspended in recent years because of the long illness and 2021 death of Christian Dodelin, former president of the commission.

After the passing of Christian Dodelin, the UIS recognized the vital importance of the commission and a meeting was held in July 2022 during the 18th ICS in France, where a Cave Rescue Symposium was scheduled. At this symposium, those present agreed on the importance of reorganizing the commission.

The 14th International Cave Rescue Conference will provide a great opportunity to revitalize the work of the Commission. We will be able to discuss and decide how to continue and develop our efforts in the area of Cave Rescue. The main goals of that CRC are to promote cave rescue and provide information to all UIS member counties. We plan to build closer relationships and collaboration among cave rescue organizations all through the world. We also plan to assist countries where more help is needed to make them more effective as first responders to cave accidents.

This conference will provide an excellent opportunity to get to know each other better, learn from each other’s experiences, and strengthen international cooperation. We have been able to share the latest advances in cave diving, rescue management, medical services, and technical support. We will be able to learn from recent rescues throughout the world.

All cavers are invited to this conference. Our expertise in cave rescue will increase thanks to the practices and innovations of others. Rescue effectiveness requires the involvement of many members of the caving community. Cavers must be involved at all levels of the rescue operation, both above ground, and underground.

We hope that this conference will help everyone have a safer experience in the underworld.


President of UIS Cave Rescue Commission

GPS Coordinates: 43° 14’36 «N, 3° 27’12» W
Access: From Ramales de la Victoria it is necessary to take the N-629, direction Burgos. At km 188 of this road (just 2 km from Ramales) the detour that leads to the cave car park is located on the left. From here, you go up a pedestrian path of about 600 meters that leads to the visitor service point, located at the mouth of the cave.
Description: 2km from the Cullalvera cave and in front of the Pico de San Vicente, is the Covalanas cavern. This cave, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2008, is a paradigmatic case due to the contemporaneity and homogeneity of its rock representations.

Epoch: Its chronology, difficult to fix absolutely, seems to date back to an ancient phase, around 20,000 BC.

The technique used is the dotted or slimy line, also present in the El Pendo cave. The hinds, the aurochs and a horse represented are of great realism and beauty, as they are endowed with movement. They were made 25,000 years ago and represent the oldest manifestations of this pointillist art that consists of applying the dye on the walls with the finger or with a tampon. The visit takes place through a narrow corridor that allows you to see the paintings from a short distance. They present an exceptional state of conservation, getting to observe the artist’s fingerprints.
