Emergencies at sea
To respond effectively to an emergency situation requires adequate equipment, appropriate training and a will to survive. By learning and practicing the skills of risk management, survival, and firefighting you may save your life.
The accidents that can befall a vessel and its crew are called Marine Casualties and may be:
Loss of rudder or propulsion.
Fire on board.
Action to take in the event of the Marine casualties listed above is described in the accompanying workbook, “Navigational Emergencies”, as this workbook focuses on survival and firefighting.
