Recently, the General Office of Nanning Municipal People’s Government issued “The Administrative Measures for Reward and Compensation of Water Search and Rescue Operations in Nanning” (hereinafter referred to as “The Measures”), encouraging more social forces to participate in water search and rescue operations, with a maximum reward of 30,000 yuan.
It is understood that “The Measures” stipulates that the types of water search and rescue rewards are divided into collective rewards and individual rewards. The objects of rewards are collectives and individuals who actively participate in water search and rescue operations and make outstanding contributions in on-site search and rescue operations, search and rescue organization coordination, and search and rescue support (including medical treatment, communication, meteorology, etc.). At the same time, “The Measures” clearly stipulates that appropriate compensation should be made for the fuel consumption and loss for detention of social forces which are either coordinated by search and rescue agencies at any levels in the jurisdiction or voluntarily participate in water search and rescue operations. In addition, “The Measures” also clarifies that the water search and rescue awards will be organized once a year.
