On 19th September 2012 the International Maritime Rescue Federation's (IMRF) opened its first regional office in Shanghai, the Asia Pacific Regional Centre (APRC).
Through the APRC Shanghai, the IMRF is now able to work closer with Search and Rescue (SAR) organisations in the Asia Pacific region.
We aim to help build response and coordination capability, while also assisting to develop greater collaboration between SAR services in the region with the goal of reducing loss of life in the worlds waters.
The IMRF Asia Pacific website will keep you up to date with the regional and global initiatives we are working on, as well as the latest SAR news.
Keep us as a favourite and check in regularly. If you want to be part of the IMRF and APRC, and help us deliver on our shared humanitarian goal of reducing loss of life in the worlds waters, join here at "Become a Member".
