Ivan Kristoff, the Founder of the International Vertical Access Network I.V.A.N.) Startup accelerator has graduated the Technical College for Mechanical Engineering in Sofia with the Diploma as a welder.

It only helped him to implement his skills in the Engineering services of the Bulgarian Army, but the knowledge and process of study how to draw and forge different materials shaped his way of thinking and cutting the edge of excessive mater.

WE SHAPE THE FUTURE The Specialized Rescue Association is initiating a complete new perspective of how to improve the Sea-Air-Land rescue and is setting up an International Vertical Access Network (I.V.A.N.) to draw the new future for volunteer rescue operations. SEA ACHIEVE NEW HEIGHTS While a student at the University of Toronto, Ivan Kristoff became the very First Person in the World who fixed the problems on the Top of the World's Tallest Building. It was the very First Rope Access Work above 500 meters of the ground, Now he is aming higher. AIR aerialrescue BUILDING THE FUTURE As a student at the New Bulgarian University, Ivan Kristoff developed his concept for building an Institute for Vertical Access operatioNs (I.V.A.N.). Now he starts building the foundations of this project at the heart of Sofia, the Capital of Bulgaria. LAND OUR NEW PLATFORM During the building of the Institute for Vertical Access operatioNs (I.V.A.N.), we will use our 11-storey crane as a vertical and aerial platform for specialized technical and confined space rescue training. SPACE

INTERNATIONAL VERTICAL ACCESS NETWORK for volunteers

The new project for the SPECIALIZED RESCUE ASSOCIATION is to create new experimental initiatives, like utilizing a helicopter anchoring/rigging system simulator for non-profit air rescue training in urban environment.

The International Vertical Access Network (I.V.A.N.) is a non-profitable and non-formal network of pears with interest rope access and rescue initiatives with a broad range of applications. One of them is the experimental project for creating a new academical program for rope access technicians, who can achieve a Bachelor’s degree in vertical and aerial rope access work. That is why we are building the Institute for Vertical Access operatioNs, under the same abbreviation (I.V.A.N.). During this process, we will use our 11-storey crane as a vertical and aerial platform for specialized technical and confined space rescue training.

I.V.A.N. endorses new disruptive volunteer rescue models, with a particular focus on the ongoing (r)evolution for this sector. We support in early stage concepts of ideas, where our expertise and experience can leverage our sponsorship to help realize the full growth potential of new initiatives for vertical/aerial rope rescue. We assist volunteers in the following areas:

TRAINING

In extreme urban environment

MENTORSHIP

With world record holders

INSTITUTE

For the Rescuer of the Future

PARTNERSHIP

With forward thinking people

OUR FOCUS IS INNOVATION

The STUDIO for VISUAL and AUDIO COMMUNICATIONS (I.V.A.N.) for volunteers, wil visualize the innovative projects for the vertical and aerial world of rescue.

Specialized training on our new aerial rescue simulator 

 High elevation of open and confined space training will prepare volunteers and professional firefighters better for high angle and high-risk rescues

ER and EMS can make a special simulations to run some “real-world” scenarios at our hard to reach places. Ivan Kristoff offered up his #BuxtonHeights and Mountain SkyView project for the training.
