Basic Firefighting

Every seaman is trained in basic firefighting and is expected to pay constant attention to fire prevention, and to be capable of serving as an effective member of a fire response team. This is reflected in the Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) that have been adopted by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and its member nations.

This training program is based on requirements set forth in Table VI of the STCW Code, as amended in 1995. Consisting of DVD training media, an audio-visual Test and a Workbook, the product offers training, testing and assessment features that comply with the International Safety Management (ISM) and STCW codes.

Content is organised into three segments:

Par 1
Shipboard Fire Fighting Organization
Escape Routes
Periodic Fire Drills
The Elements of Fire & Explosion
Fuel, Heat, Oxygen
Types & Sources of Ignition
The Three Methods of Fire Spread
Classes of Fire

Part 2

Crew members should be assigned to watch Basic Fire Fighting, Parts 1, 2 and 3 then view the audio-visual test while recording their answers to the test questions.

Answer sheets and Certificates of Completion should be signed by each crewmember, his or her supervisor and by the captain, and maintained with crew records. Crewmembers are encouraged to keep copies of the Certificate of Completion with their personal records as well.
