Says Bruce Reid, CEO of the IMRF: “The aim of these Awards is to recognise and thank courage and exceptional performance, both by individuals and organisations, all of whom are making a major contribution to SAR, progressing IMRF’s mission to improve global maritime SAR and prevent loss of life in the world’s waters. By highlighting these achievements, we hope to gain further recognition by the wider international community including governments, non-governmental organisations, the news media, and the general public.”

The H.E.R.O. Awards will:

raise awareness of the excellent work done by all those involved in the maritime SAR community, with the aim of increasing Government, commercial and public recognition, support and funding
reward the selfless efforts and achievements of individuals who make sacrifices to save lives, on the water or in support
raise awareness of innovative SAR products, technologies and processes with the aim of spreading ideas for improvement
raise awareness of the role and responsibilities of the IMRF with the aim of increasing membership and participation.

Any individual or organisation that has shown excellence in SAR response, anywhere in the world, may be nominated. The primary criterion for nomination for a H.E.R.O. Award will be a major contribution to SAR with acts of bravery honoured equally alongside innovatory ideas with technical and/or intellectual excellence, which in unison make SAR work safer for the rescuer and the rescued alike.

The H.E.R.O. Awards 2016 will recognise actions that took place, or were completed, in the period 1st July 2015 to 30th June 2016. No applications can be accepted for events or actions that fall outside this period.
