Who are the teams who put themselves in these dangerous situations? And do we really know what to do if we find ourselves in need of rescuing? Rescue operations require a high level of training and are undertaken by specialist rescue squads. Rescue delves into this world, exploring topics related to rescue techniques, emergency supplies and equipment.

Visitors can engage with exciting hands-on and full-body experiences such as firefighting, surf rescue, and sea life survival, while comprehensive graphic panels communicate the technology and techniques that rescuers use.
