Shipboard fire is one of the greatest dangers facing all seafarers. Basic and refresher training in how to prevent and tackle fires on board is essential for all officers and crew and is a requirement under STCW.
Videotel’s flagship five-part series, ‘Fire Fighting at Sea’, has been completely revised and updated to reflect current regulations and industry good practice. With the help of marine fire specialists, industry representatives from several shipping companies and with all new video footage throughout shot on board ship and in a fire training facility, these five programmes are realistic and important to any member of a ship’s crew. The series aims to give seafarers a basic understanding of how fires can start, how to prevent them and their role in combatting fire on board ship. It forms a substantial and comprehensive training package.
