UK P&I Club Supports IMRF Maritime Mass Rescue Projects
The UK P&I Club has made a significant donation to the International Maritime Rescue Federation (IMRF) to support its work developing resources, training and building preparedness for maritime mass rescue operations.
Part of the UK P&I Club funding will provide essential support for the IMRF online resource library, which brings together as much mass rescue operations (MRO) guidance material as possible. The online library (www.imrfmro.org) is free to use and available to SAR professionals around the world. The funding will help us update the information available, enabling SAR services to better plan and prepare for MRO situations.
The remaining funding will support two scholarships for the IMRF MRO Subject-Matter Expert Course, which will be held in September 2018. The only course of its kind, which was launched last year. It offers a detailed study of MRO issues, giving the attendees the skills to assess their own organisation’s capability to respond to MRO events and includes follow-up support from the IMRF as needed. You can read more on this in May's Lifeline newsletter (attached above) or by visiting the IMRF webpage here
