Fundraising & Communications Skill-Share

29-30 June in the Netherlands

Jolan van den Broek, Head of Communications and Fundraising for KNRM, writes:

In June this year KNRM will be hosting a Fundraising and Communications skillshare in the Netherlands. This will be open to all IMRF members and others with an interest in fundraising and communications, and will consist of two days of plenaries, workshops and round table sessions that will shine a light on fundraising and communications to explore and adapt to the specific needs of working for a lifeboat institution.

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.

Mass Rescue Operations: Learning from Experience

As regular readers will know, the fourth in the IMRF’s acclaimed series of conferences on maritime mass rescue operations will be held in Gothenburg, Sweden, on Monday & Tuesday 12-13 June 2017, with a live exercise during the late afternoon of Sunday 11th as an ‘optional extra’, at no extra charge, for delegates arriving in the city over the weekend.

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.
