Traveling Exhibit Hall – Level 2

Search and rescue operations take place every minute, every hour, every day, all around the world. From the air to the sea and on land, responsive operations are lifelines to people in times of need. 

But what does a rescue scenario really involve? 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?

Through interactive exhibit pieces and the stories and testimonies of real-life heroes, the RESCUE exhibit will give guests a first-hand look into the technology and teamwork that goes into a rescue mission.

Check out the Building Guide to see what’s happening during your visit.

Rappel in and put your skills to the test to see if you have what it takes to be a hero!

  • How does a helicopter pilot spot someone on the ground during a helicopter rescue? Climb aboard a
    life-size helicopter and choose to fly a simulator or use the infrared camera to search for heat signatures
    far away!
  • Did you know that different kinds of fires require different fire extinguishers? With the “Fight the Fire” experience, visitors are faced with four different fire extinguishers and must choose the correct one to put out the simulated fire.
  • You’ve been cast as a reporter! Step in front of the camera and watch as chromakey technology relays the vision onto a monitor so friends and family can watch the news program come together.
  • And more!

Whether you’re an anchor breaking the news of a disaster, or part of a search and rescue mission, there is no “I” in “TEAM”! RESCUE will give visitors a look at the technology and teamwork used by real heroes every day.

RESCUE was created and designed by Scitech and produced by Imagine Exhibitions.
