Who We Are


This website is provided to help bring information together on Maritime Incident Response Groups and similar initiatives in line with the IMRF's aim of preventing loss of life in the world’s waters.

MIRG Video

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!
