Nominations open for the annual IMRF Awards
Nominations are now open for The International Maritime Rescue Federation (IMRF) Awards which recognise those who have saved lives at sea.
Submissions can include search and rescue (SAR) professionals, lifeguards and ships' crew who have gone beyond the call of duty saving the lives of refugees, people involved in accidents, cruise passengers on burning ships or fellow crew members who've fallen overboard.
There are four categories in the IMRF Awards this year including the IMRF Award for Outstanding Individual Contribution to a Maritime SAR Operation and The IMRF Award for Outstanding Team Contribution to a Maritime SAR Operation.
There will also be one award presented to a safety company for Innovation and Technology in Maritime Search and Rescue and The IMRF Vladimir Maksimov Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Maritime SAR Sector.
There will also be an IMRF Local Hero Award 2018, which will be presented to an exceptional local SAR individual nominated by the event's hosts, the Norwegian Society for Sea Rescue.
Nominations can be made online at: http://www.imrfawards.org/nomination-form-imrf-awards or by e-mail to: email@example.com
The closing date for nominations is 31 July 2018.
