VIDEO BOOK

The objective of this module is to demonstrate the use of a ship's emergency or contingency plan. The program opens with the rationale for a contingency plan and goes on to define what it must contain and the essential steps in responding to an emergency at sea. The need for all officers to have a good understanding of their ship's plan is emphasized. This can only be achieved through good training and regular exercising of the plan. The program continues with a detailed examination of an exercise on board ship of an emergency plan in response to a collision. The interactions between the master and the emergency party, the ship and the office and the coastal authorities are scrutinised.
