Description

Fire, though useful to man, is often found to be the cause destruction. However, fire can be safely harnessed and preventative measures can be put in place to avoid hazards. Towards this goal, human development over time has been able to lay down firefighting techniques useful to the prevention of fire outbreaks in different places.

Fire on board watercraft is a seafarer’s worst nightmare. Towards the goal of fire prevention, it is important to know how to operate a ship safely and maintain a vigil on equipment and machinery during watchstanding. This will help avoid accidental fires that have the potential to end up becoming large fires. Such large fires, when out of control, can burn down the largest of ships to ashes. An important part of crew education is in knowing not only the firefighting equipment and systems on board, but also keeping a clean and well-organized ship. A key characteristic of a well-organized ship includes access to all its physical resources and of course well-secured cargoes. The crew must also understand how a fire can start and grow, as well as what can be done as an immediate measure to extinguish or contain such fires.
