The IMRF (International Maritime Rescue Federation) and The Nautical Institute have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) agreeing to work together on projects that support both organisations’ shared objective to improve safety at sea.
The IMRF is the international charity that brings together the world’s maritime search and rescue organisations to share lifesaving ideas, technologies and experiences, to work to prevent loss of life in the world’s waters, and The Nautical Institute is the international representative body for those involved in the control of seagoing ships.
The winners of the IMRF Awards 2018 have been announced at a formal dinner and award ceremony attended by shortlisted finalists from around the world.
Theresa Crossley, CEO IMRF says; “The winners of this years’ IMRF Awards include some outstanding individuals and exceptional organisations and companies who really set the ‘gold standard’ for maritime search and rescue around the world."
“We would like to thank all those who submitted nominations. We congratulate all those who were shortlisted and the runners up in each category, but most of all we celebrate this years’ winners. They really are remarkable and act as an inspiration to all those working and volunteering all around the world to prevent loss of life in the world’s waters. We would also like to thank all of the IMRF Award sponsors who make this global recognition and celebration of maritime SAR excellence possible, and, of course, the Norwegian Society for Sea Rescue, who so generously hosted this year’s Awards ceremony.”
