AWARDS

EURORSA wings – Rescue Swimmer Wings

The idea to award each member with an EuroRSA rescue swimmer  insignia was brought up at the 3rd Rescue Swimmer meeting in Gijon, Spain. The members will be presented with this recognition when attending a Rescue Swimmer meeting. Wings are presented in three classes: Bronze, Silver and Golden wings. The EuroRSA wings can be worn in company or military uniform respecting their own regulations.

Bronze wings: The member is a qualified helicopter rescue swimmer and has conducted his first live mission as a rescue swimmer.  1 – 10 years of duty as a Rescue Swimmer.

 

Silver wings:  The member is a qualified helicopter rescue swimmer. 10 – 20 years of duty as a Rescue Swimmer.

 

Golden wings:  The member is a qualified helicopter rescue swimmer.  20+ years of duty as a  Rescue Swimmer.

 

EURORSA wings can also be presented as a high recognition by the association to anyone  for doing something exceptional  related  to SAR  and with the unanimous decision of the EuroRSA board.  Any casualty within the association, weather it’s a cause of the job or not, will be presented with the highest recognition – the golden EuroRSA wings.

 


Rescue Swimmer Award

Every country presents one SAR mission or act that occurred after the last meeting  that they see as worthy for the highest recognition by the European Rescue Swimmers Association.  The board of the association discusses each presented mission or act and makes a vote on which ones will be presented with the award – The rescue swimmer fin.
