The President of IRC is The Rt. Hon. The Lord Selkirk of Douglas MSP. QC
The International Rescue Corps has an outstanding record of saving lives, in improving quality of life and maintaining high standards of safety for many within the United Kingdom.
The many missions undertaken in North and South America, in Europe, the Middle East, the Far East, Africa and Russia make the International Rescue Corps a much respected and admired body throughout a great many countries.
The willingness to attend any disaster, natural or man-made, is genuinely admired as is the capacity to mobilise a team or teams to assist in the co-ordination of local and international rescue efforts within a few hours, which is an impressive capability.
Good advance planning and effectiveness in difficult circumstances have led to countless successes. I wish the International Rescue Corps whose professionalism is of the highest standard, every success in the future. Their skills and expertise will always be in demand.
The Rt. Hon. The Lord Selkirk of Douglas MSP. QC
