    AIT honors Taiwanese participants of AMVER ocean rescue alliance (2021/12/03)

    The de facto American ambassador went to Kaohsiung on Friday, to honor Taiwanese ships that participated in an ocean rescue alliance sponsored by the U.S. Coast Guard. The AMVER program, which stands for Automated Mutual-Assistance Vessel Rescue, is an alliance of commercial ships that volunteer to help people in distress at sea. Last year, 47 vessels from seven Taiwanese shipping and fishing companies participated in the program. Let’s hear from one of them.

    Hsu Ming-chao
    Shipping company representative
    Previously we received notification from the U.S. Coast Guard that, roughly 70 nautical miles from our location, a Japanese fishing vessel was in trouble. As soon as we received the notification, we proceeded to the location to provide assistance.

    Sandra Oudkirk
    AIT director
    The participation of these Taiwan flagged or owned vessels in the AMVER program exemplifies the strength of U.S.-Taiwan cooperation in maritime security and safety and provides yet another example of Taiwan’s important contribution to the global community – a reminder that when given a chance, Taiwan can help and Taiwan will help.

    The AMVER program was created after the sinking of the Titanic nearly 100 years ago. Over the past 20 years, the program has saved more than 2,800 lives at sea.

    “之前接獲到美國海上防衛隊通知,附近約七十海里處,有一艘日本漁船遇險,我們公司接獲美國海岸防衛隊通知,立即前往救援。”

    [[美國在台協會處長 孫曉雅]]
    “參與自動互助船舶救援系統(AMVER)計畫的台籍船,體現美台在海事安全合作方面實力,這也是另一個最佳例證,顯示台灣對國際社會做出許多重要貢獻,這也提醒大家只要有機會,台灣能幫忙,台灣也願意幫忙。”

    一百多年前的鐵達尼號船難,催生美國海岸防衛隊制定自動互助船舶救援計畫,而過去20年,自動互助船舶救援系統一共拯救2800多條生命。
