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.
