Mass Rescue Operations: IMRF’s First Subject-Matter Expert Course

Over the last few years the IMRF’s maritime mass rescue operations (MRO) project has produced a good deal. We have held three subject-specific conferences and in June we will be running a fourth. We have brought together useful material and developed a series of guidance papers and an e-book on MRO issues and potential solutions: visit www.imrfmro.org (new window) to find out more. We have an ongoing series of MRO workshops, for emergency responders around the world to get together and focus on these most challenging of SAR cases.

Now we’re introducing a new element to this work: an MRO subject-matter training course.

A Proposal for Bathing Area Safety Assessment

IMRF Members Società Nazionale di Salvamento (National Rescue Society of Italy - NRSI/SNS) have provided information prepared by Adm. (MD) rt. Dr. Francesco Simonetti, member of the SNS Medical and Scientific Committee, titled "A Proposal for Bathing Area Safety Assessment”.

The theme is focused on beach rescue with the vision of "a seamless rescue service from the beach to the open sea". The SNS would like to share the information with IMRF organizations that specialise in this kind of rescue, or for those that deal with a department devoted to beach rescue.

Many thanks to Admiral Romano Grandi, Vice Precident of the National Rescue Society of Italy, for providing this paper.

Maritime Mass Rescue Conference and Subject-Matter Expert Course – Early Bird Offer!

The IMRF is running another in its acclaimed series of maritime mass rescue conferences on 11-13 June 2017, hosted once again by our good friends at the Swedish Sea Rescue Society in Gothenburg. And on 14-16 June we have something new: our first mass rescue operations (MRO) subject-matter expert course, also to be held in the Swedish port city. You are invited to join us at one or both of these important events.

Planning for both is advancing: watch for more news in LIFE LINE and on the IMRF websites. But you can book your place at the conference NOW – and if you take advantage of our very special ‘early bird’ early registration rate you will save hundreds of Euros!
