So, yes, the IMRF and IMO Publishing had to increase the shipping prices a little to cover the costs. That's the bad news out of the way.
Over to the good news ...
Shipping orders have become faster and safer than ever before!
As of the 1st September 2018 all IMO Publishing products will be shipped by UPS as "Expedited" or "Express", meaning that not only will your order be tracked (and so will have great difficulty getting lost wherever you are in the world), but it will also be courier delivered to your shipping address!
As for our own IMRF products, you can still expect a tracked and safe delivery as always.
Our IMRF Members can still enjoy their 20% Membership Discount, as before. If you are not an IMRF Member yet, explore how to become one by going to the "Become a Member" (new window) pages, or e-mail us for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have also tidied up the help pages, so it is now much easier to find the help you are looking for. But - as always - feel free to send your questions to email@example.com if you can't find what you are looking for!
Other great news is that the next edition of the International Aeronautical and Maritime Search and Rescue (IAMSAR) Manual will begin to appear in early Summer 2019. We are not sure yet exactly when each version - in English, Spanish and French - will be published, but we can keep you up to date with the latest news through this newsletter.
Do you know any colleagues and friends who would like to be kept up to date too? Then ask them to sign up for our newsletters and other news here. Of course, you can always unsubscribe at any point.
And the hardcover book "Drowning: Prevention, Rescue, Treatment by Joost Bierens" (in English) (new window) is still sold by us for only £90.00 for Non-Members and £72.00 for IMRF Members. You can't get it cheaper anywhere else! Get your copy today (new window).
And this is the Honest to Goodness Truth.
