About the IMRF Awards

About the IMRF Awards

The International Maritime Rescue Federation (IMRF) Awards aim to recognise some of the exceptional individuals and organisations around the world that make maritime search and rescue (SAR) possible.

The IMRF Awards (formerly known as the H.E.R.O. Awards) are now in their third year and have proved a great success, raising awareness of the excellent work done by those involved in the maritime SAR community, including highlighting innovative new SAR products and technologies.


We have four categories one can make a nomination in:

minilogoimrf3 Individual Award   - for outstanding individual contribution to a maritime SAR operation;
minilogoimrf3 Team Award – for outstanding team contribution to a maritime SAR operation;
minilogoimrf3 Innovation & Technology Award - for innovation and technology in maritime search and rescue;
minilogoimrf3 Lifetime Achievement Award – for outstanding contribution to maritime search and rescue ‘The Vladimir Maksimov Award'.

This year's submission of nominations is closed! 

This year’s Awards Dinner will be hosted by the Norwegian Society for Sea Rescue (Redningsselskapet) (new window) , at their new training centre, RS Noatun (new window) in Horten, Norway on Thursday, 8 November 2018 .

Representatives from SAR organisations around the world will be in attendance, and we will be announcing the winner in each category then.


The IMRF European Regional Development Meeting and the IMRF Awards Ceremony

Posted in IMRF Awards News -

The nominations are all in and the judges are now deliberating who will win a 2018 IMRF Award for excellence in rescue operations.

Whilst we wait to hear what they decide the IMRF Secretariat are preparing for the awards ceremony which will, once again, be held alongside the IMRF European regional development meeting.

This year's event will be held 8-9th November at RS Noatun in Horten, Norway.

IMRF European Regional Development Meetings are a chance to network with other SAR experts from your region as well as have a voice in the development of SAR globally.

For that reason, we want the meeting to address the topics and issues that concern your organisations, so that you will all feel able to contribute freely to the discussions.

We are developing the programme around the theme: "SAR and other short stories: Success, solutions, volunteering, engagement and more in maritime Search and Rescue".

All IMRF European members are welcome to register and submit their ideas for discussion topics. For more details of this event, and to register please go to https://international-maritime-rescue.org/imrf-european-regional-development-meeting-2018.
