"We want to say a wholehearted and sincere thank you, to Frontex and Hellenic Coast Guard for inviting us on board, and to our dear brothers and sisters in Hellenic Rescue Team: We cherish our partnership. And last, but not least, to the Norwegian Police for a fruitful and constructive collaboration," says Lind.
"This operation enabled us to do something about it. Together!"
In the IMRF our mantra is that when it comes to maritime SAR the only competition is with the sea! Cooperation and collaboration, locally, nationally and internationally is the key. IMRF CEO Bruce Reid stated "Operation Poseidon has been a great example of this IMRF mantra. The RS response to the humanitarian crisis was swift, decisive and because of this more lives were saved. We can’t commend highly enough the work done by the men and women of RS."
