This course provides fire prevention and fire fighting training and skills development for anyone who works at a harbor or marina. While not a substitute for live practice drills, it provides valuable written information on fire theory, practice scenarios, “what if” situations to think about and react to, and quizzes to check your understanding.
The course was designed to increase awareness of possible fire hazards as well as provide employees effective measures to prevent and fight fire in the harbor. The course also stresses the importance of policy and planning, providing actual examples. Employees who complete this course will also gain valuable insight into the complex and serious nature of unified fire response.
This course is part of the Career Training for Ports and Marinas series. Requirements for class: Must have a computer with internet access, speakers OR headphones, personal email address, Adobe Reader Flash Player.
Almost certainly you will be the first responder to a fire within your marina. When knowledge of fire is added to your local knowledge of the harbor, boats and their occupants, you are a major asset in preventing fires, assisting local fire departments, and preventing loss of life, loss of property and environmental damage. This course will help you become that asset.
