About - Mixed Migrant Safety Project

AboutIn 2016 there have already been 100,000 migrant arrivals to Greece by sea and over 400 deaths (source IOM). The IMRF is working with its member organisations to assist the development of maritime SAR rescue services in Greece to help prevent the loss of life in the Aegean Sea.

Through the combined efforts of a number of IMRF Members we are building the capability of the local Hellenic Rescue Team (HRT) to respond to the increasing demand for rescue. This project has two phases, firstly helping through the provision of trained crew and boats to manage the current demand. The second phase is helping HRT by providing rescue boats and equipment and training locals to crew these boats ...

The IMRF exists for two primary purposes:

advocacy, on behalf of the world’s maritime search and rescue organisations; and
mutual support – the sharing of information and ideas so as to improve maritime SAR and save lives worldwide.

In both cases we – the world’s SAR community – are stronger together. We are stronger if we speak with one voice on the literally vital issues that concern us, making sure that the continuing, and often needless, loss of life in the world’s waters is kept high on the agenda. And we are stronger if we work together, and share.

In this edition of LIFE LINE you can read about some more of our ongoing advocacy work, particularly at the International Maritime Organization. But we are mostly focussing this time on some of the many ways in which IMRF Members share their experience and expertise, to the benefit of all.

In particular there’s the work the IMRF is coordinating in support of our SAR colleagues in the Aegean; international work on sharing maritime firefighting experience; and our ‘Members Assisting Members’ resource, recently re-launched. Here you can request or offer help on any maritime SAR subject, wherever you are in the world – and you don’t have to be an IMRF Member to do so!
