A Maritime Incident Response Group (MIRG) can solve on board problems such as fires, chemical incidents and persons trapped. Dutch, Belgian, French and English fire brigades join forces in this MIRG-EU project to set up a European MIRG. The mission is to save the ship and to facilitate a safe transport to a port for repair and handling of the incident. This makes evacuation of crew and passengers unnecessary and limits the effects on the (natural) environment.
The Baltic Sea Maritime Incident Response Group (Baltic Sea MIRG) Project is established by the Finnish Border Guard as the responsible maritime search and rescue authority in cooperation with Finland’s Emergency Rescue Services.
