A Maritime Search & Rescue (MSAR) conference held recently in Helsinki, Finland, was attended by two volunteers from the Emergency Response & Rescue Corps (ERRC).
This 2-day conference, organised by the Development Network UK, is an annual appointment for all international SAR agencies, coast guards, regulatory bodies, maritime operators and other players to participate in numerous fora to discuss updated operational requirements and legislations.
Additionally the MSAR conference gave the opportunity for participants to inspect novel equipment on display, as well as the presentations given by manufacturers and distributors.
The ERRC is a Gozo-based voluntary, charitable and non-profit organisation that “aims to prevent and alleviate emergency situations involving people at risk.”
