Fire Fighting or Damage Control at sea often means that the ship's crew can expect
little in terms of external assistance. They must, therefore, be fully trained to
maximize the effectiveness of the fire fighting equipment provided on board whilst
taking in to consideration the effect of their actions on the ship's stability or
Training Systems can be designed and prepared as mock ups of the original design
or a used vessel that may be modified to suit the purpose.
Many effects can be brought in to play to add realism – ships movement, flooding,
noise, heat, smoke and of course real fire.
The degree of difficulty can be varied to suit the level of competence and experience
of the Crew.
Safety is paramount and the actions of the trainees are monitored at all times to
ensure that they do not come to harm in what can be highly realistic and stressful
