Abstract

On-board a commercial ship, fire can swiftly lead to catastrophic consequences for the lives aboard, the ship, its cargo and the environment surrounding it. Fire is a destructive force that requires a broad range of knowledge and skill to overcome. Accurately recognising the type and extent of a problem is the first step in formulating a sound plan to deal with it. Making the best use of resources and techniques to limit damage and efficiently extinguish a fire is the ultimate goal.
