    The Boat Operations and Training (BOAT) Program establishes a national standard for the training, qualification, credentialing and typing of maritime law enforcement and rescue personnel. While the BOAT Program is not mandatory, adoption and implementation of the program will provide a true national standard for the purpose of maritime interoperability at the federal, state and local levels.

  • International Cospas-Sarsat Programme International Cospas-Sarsat Programme
    International Satellite System for Search & Rescue. A Cospas-Sarsat beacon, also called a distress radio beacon or emergency beacon, is a radio transmitter that can be activated in a life-threatening emergency to summon assistance from government authorities. The International Cospas-Sarsat Programme provides accurate, timely, and reliable distress alert and location data to help search and rescue authorities assist persons in distress. The objective of the Cospas-Sarsat system is to reduce, as far as possible, delays in the provision of distress alerts to SAR services, and the time required to locate a distress and provide assistance, which have a direct impact on the probability of survival of the person in distress at sea or on land. To achieve this objective, Cospas-Sarsat Participants implement, maintain, co-ordinate and operate a satellite system capable of detecting distress alert transmissions from radiobeacons that comply with Cospas-Sarsat specifications and performance standards, and of determining their position anywhere on the globe. The distress alert and location data is provided by Cospas-Sarsat Participants to the responsible SAR services. Montreal, Quebec, Canada

  • International Maritime Rescue Federation (IMRF) International Maritime Rescue Federation (IMRF)
    Too many people lose their lives in the world’s waters. Estimates range from 360,000 per year (WHO Drowning report 2014) to 1.1m (International Life Saving Drowning Prevention Conference 2013). Many of these deaths could be prevented through safety interventions and improved maritime SAR coordination and response. The IMRF is the international charity focussed on preventing loss of life in the world’s waters. We work with Government and Non-Government SAR Organisations to achieve this. We now have 112 organisations in 48 countries paying a subscription as members of the IMRF and working together to reduce the loss of life. The membership includes Maritime Rescue Coordination Centres, Coast Guards and Volunteer response organisations. Stonehaven, Scotland, UK

  • USCG Office of Search and Rescue USCG Office of Search and Rescue
    Search and Rescue (SAR) is one of the Coast Guard's oldest missions. Minimizing the loss of life, injury, property damage or loss by rendering aid to persons in distress and property in the maritime environment has always been a Coast Guard priority. Coast Guard SAR response involves multi-mission stations, cutters, aircraft and boats linked by communications networks. The National SAR Plan divides the U.S. area of SAR responsibility into internationally recognized inland and maritime SAR regions. The Coast Guard is the Maritime SAR Coordinator. To meet this responsibility, the Coast Guard maintains SAR facilities on the East, West and Gulf coasts; in Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, and Puerto Rico, as well as on the Great Lakes and inland U.S. waterways. The Coast Guard is recognized worldwide as a leader in the field of search and rescue.
