Has Your Ship Rescued People At Sea?

At Amver we like to highlight the good work and lifesaving work done by our participants. One way we do that is by sharing your stories of saving lives at sea. We get that information from various sources. Often, we are notified by United States Coast Guard rescue personnel. Sometimes we hear directly from a ship. Other times we hear from a Flag state or read something in a maritime journal or newspaper.

In order to make it easier for you to report saving lives at sea we are reminding our participants they can report rescues on the Amver homepage. Simply click the orange button titled Rescue Report and fill out the details of your operation. This sends a report to the Amver office at the United States Coast Guard. Keep in mind this is NOT an official report and does not take the place of your requirements in accordance with the IAMSAR Manual or reporting to a Rescue Coordination Center.

We hope you will use this tool as a means to keep the Amver office up to date with your rescue operations. It gives us a better idea of how many people are rescued each year.

To the ships that have already started using this tool, thank you! We hope the rest of our Amver participants will consider using this tool as well.
