We are proud to announce that Andrew Ingram has been invited to present a paper at the International Maritime Rescue Federation’s (IMRF) World Maritime Rescue Congress in Bremerhaven, Germany in June.
Andrew will speak about water safety for children and will showcase our success through the WaterWise Academy which has reached almost 700 000 children to date.
This Congress is hosted every four years and is a unique opportunity to meet with other rescue organisations from around the world, to share case studies, discuss best practices and forge close working relationships. With over 60 presenters and 16 workshops over 3 days, topics range from Fundraising to training and development, mass rescue operations, the expanding use of drones and the challenging topic of rescuing migrants.
The Congress will include a parade of boats on the Bremerhaven harbour featuring craft from all eras and the event coincides with the 150 year anniversary of the Germany sea rescue DGzRS.
Andrew will take the opportunity to be an on scene reporter and will provide feedback on the happenings through the Sea Rescue blog.
