The H.E.R.O. Awards was brought into life by the International Maritime Rescue Federation (IMRF) and McMurdo in 2016 to raise awareness and recognition of the hard-working individuals and organisations making maritime Search and Rescue possible.
The H.E.R.O. Awards:
Raise awareness of the excellent work done by all those involved in the maritime SAR community, with the aim of increasing government, commercial and public recognition, support and funding;
Reward the selfless efforts and achievements of individuals who make sacrifices to save lives, on the water or in support;
Raise awareness of innovative SAR products, technologies and processes with the aim of spreading ideas for improvement.
The IMRF H.E.R.O. Awards 2017 recognise and thank individuals and teams for the technical innovation, coordination and on-scene participation that make vital contributions to maritime search and rescue.
