The European Lifeboat Crew Exchange Programme is going live again! Following several years of digital webinars, the IMRF will host a physical lifeboat crew exchange later this year.

The event, which will take place on 23-29 September, will enable crew members to share ideas and experiences amongst their fellow maritime SAR organisations to improve capabilities and operational best practices in a cohesive and cost-effective manner. Crew members can then bring back their gained professional knowledge and experience to their own SAR organisation.

It will also focus on improving maritime SAR training modules in areas such as first aid, navigation, towing, sea survival, man overboard recovery, crisis management, leadership and maritime English.

The IMRF’s European Lifeboat Crew Exchange Programme is now available to book. If you would like to find out more, please email Matthew Fader at [email protected] or email [email protected]
