The Conference of Professional Operators for Response Towing is seeking nominations for two awards that will be presented in January at the 26th C-PORT conference.

C-PORT said the Association for Rescue at Sea is continuing its program to annually recognize a C-PORT member for rescue efforts. The association was formed in 1976 to foster traditional maritime search-and-rescue values.

C-PORT said an award, if one is recognized, will be given at its Jan. 13-15 conference to a person or group that has performed exceptional acts in attempting to save life in the maritime environment. C-PORT said instances in which rescuers place their lives at risk will be given the highest consideration. The award can be given posthumously.

To be considered, the rescue must have occurred between Nov. 1, 2011 and Oct. 31, 2012. C-PORT said nominations should include a full description of the circumstances and such factors as the location of the incident, prevailing weather conditions, skill displayed, determination to conduct the rescue operation, exceptional courage demonstrated and the degree of risk involved.

C-PORT also is seeking nominations for the C-PORT Compass Rose Award, which is presented to someone who is dedicated to making the marine assistance industry better through hard work and a desire to make boating an enjoyable experience.

Nominations for both awards can be emailed to tcardone@cport.us or mailed to C-PORT’s office at 3640-B3 North Federal Hwy No. 136, Lighthouse Point, FL 33064.

Nominations are due by Nov. 1.
