As previously announced, because of COVID-19 restrictions, this year’s popular IMRF annual European Regional Meeting will take the form of a webinar on 15 October 2020 from 09:45-16:00 (CEST - Central Europe Summer Time). 

This meeting is free and for IMRF Members only.

This online meeting will consist of a series of presentations and discussions on a range of SAR topics led by SAR experts.

The theme for this year’s meeting will be: "Working together in different places”.

This reflects the fact that, although IMRF members cannot be together physically, we can still work together to improve SAR capability and save lives.

The IMRF’s regional meetings give great perspective for any organisation whether its large or small, it’s a chance to connect with people doing exactly the same thing as you, just in a different country and my experience is that everyone takes away a handful of inspirational thoughts and learnings, which they can take back to their team. In these strange times, its perhaps even more important than ever to share and learn across the maritime SAR community.
