About the IMRF Awards

About the IMRF Awards

The International Maritime Rescue Federation (IMRF) Awards aim to recognise some of the exceptional individuals and organisations around the world that make maritime search and rescue (SAR) possible.

The IMRF Awards (formerly known as the H.E.R.O. Awards) have proved a great success in the previous years, raising awareness of the excellent work done by those involved in the maritime SAR community, including highlighting innovative new SAR products and technologies.


We have four categories one can make a nomination in:

minilogoimrf3 Individual Award   - for outstanding individual contribution to a maritime SAR operation;
minilogoimrf3 Team Award – for outstanding team contribution to a maritime SAR operation;
minilogoimrf3 Innovation & Technology Award - for innovation and technology in maritime search and rescue;
minilogoimrf3 Lifetime Achievement Award – for outstanding contribution to maritime search and rescue ‘The Vladimir Maksimov Award'.

The Nomination form will be open in the near future. Watch this space ....


CM Hammar Sponsorship Announcement

Posted in IMRF Awards News -

CM Hammar, who for the past 160 years have been providing better solutions for safety at sea, are sponsoring the 2018 IMRF Award for Outstanding Individual Contribution to a Maritime SAR Operation.

CM Hammar, IMRF associate members and corporate supporter, were inspired to get involved in this year’s awards to demonstrate their commitment and thanks to the SAR community and our members who are involved in rescue operations every year where lives are saved.

The IMRF Awards are unique, in that they were specifically established to recognise and reward the selfless efforts of search and rescue (SAR) operators around the world, who make many sacrifices to saves lives at sea.

The IMRF Awards also showcase new search and rescue products, technologies and techniques. Feedback from SAR operators is invaluable in creating and developing new products that could help improve search and rescue operations and save more lives.

Håkan Skutberg, Managing Director, CM Hammar says “At CM Hammar, our vision is to create better solutions for safety at sea. That’s why we are proud to sponsor this year’s IMRF Award for Outstanding Individual Contribution to a Maritime SAR Operation recognising those individuals, who put their lives at risk to save lives at sea.

Theresa Crossley, CEO IMRF said: “We are very grateful to CM Hammar for their sponsorship of the IMRF Awards. Now in their third year, the IMRF Awards 2018 are again attracting interest and nominations from around the world, and we look forward to announcing the winners at the awards dinner in November."

The IMRF Awards 2018 recognise actions that took place, or were completed, in the period from 01 July 2017 to 30 June 2018. Any individual or organisation anywhere in the world can be nominated for an IMRF Award.

All of the submissions are being assessed by a panel of judges and the shortlisted finalists will be announced in mid-October.

The winners will be announced at an awards dinner hosted by the Norwegian Society for Sea Rescue in Norway, on Thursday, 8 November 2018.

CM Hammar’s vision is to substantially reduce the loss of lives at sea by creating better solutions for safety at sea. CM Hammar does so through its commitment to quality, constant innovation and sensitivity to its customers’ needs. https://www.cmhammar.com/ (new window).
