Discussion Topics:
The role and contribution of the specialized maritime voluntary organizations and the correct choice of suitable rescue units to the enhancement of the rescue operations efficiency.

In connection with the completion of 20 years since the establishment of specialized association volunteer for humanitarian marine search and rescue - "BULSAR" nomination committee proposed to mark this event in an appropriate manner, including the holding of this forum, whose aim is:

  • Invite voluntary and government entities, focusing on those who are Black, Mediterranean, Baltic and other distant regions, representatives of state structures in Bulgaria, responsible for ensuring maritime security in general and for the conscientious and accurate performance of our conventional duties this area.
  • Representatives of international bodies related to the problems of maritime policy concerning the protection of human life at sea, the ecology of the sea and other important issues.

BULSAR believes that the presence of representatives from organizations such as IMRF, IMO, COSPAS-SARSAT, the European Commission, the Parliamentary Assembly of Economic Cooperation from the Black Sea countries (PABSEC) and others, would help to build a national strategy on sea rescue and ecology of the sea. They ask them to help and participate in the discussed issues.

Sharing the experience of these countries in relation management, planning and implementation of rescue, the characteristics of the rescue units, attracting alternative structures having floating and rescue aircrafts, the application of new advanced technologies and resources will help increase the efficiency of rescue events and will contribute to enhancing maritime transport culture and social security, etc.

BULSAR hopes to see you there!
