The IMRF’s MRO project will reach an important point this summer, with the launch of its online reference library at the World Maritime Rescue Congress.

The library will join the IMRF’s successful MRO Workshop package as project outcomes designed to help anyone in SAR to prepare for these rare but extremely challenging events.

The library – which will be both dynamic and user-friendly! – will be organised around a series of guidance papers developed by an IMRF subject-matter expert group led by David Jardine-Smith.

This guidance draws on lessons learned in maritime mass rescue incidents of all kinds, in exercises and drills, and at the IMRF’s Gothenburg series of conferences.

The IMRF’s guidance is backed up by incident and exercise reports and guidance published by the IMO and others – particularly the United States Coast Guard.

SAR people who have followed the project have commented:

IMRF has done a tremendous job with the project, enabling them to share information and raising awareness among stakeholders.

IMRF keeps us all focused on this difficult subject and it is very much appreciated!

The IMRF’s guidance will also be published as an eBook: watch the website for news or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
