This study guide has been produced to complement the training text, Marine Fire Prevention, Fire-fighting, and Fire Safety, published by the U.S. Department of Transportation, Maritime Administration. Although the basic principles in marine fire-fighting have not changed, this study guide offers up-to-date information for a better understanding of the principles and the methodologies involved. In addition, this study guide includes all the contents required for a U.S. Coast Guard-approved marine fire-fighting course, as well as meets all the competencies for the International Convention for the Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping (STCW), per the latest 2010 Manilla amendments. Moreover, this study utilises current-day examples, equipment, and techniques, breaking down the text into twelve easy-to-follow lessons: basic shipboard fire-fighting organisation and safety, causes of fires and methods of prevention, theories of fire, combating fire, extinguishing agents, extinguishing appliances, fire detection systems, fixed fire extinguishing systems, safety and fire-fighting equipment, and respirators and the self-contained breathing apparatus. These lessons will provide the students the knowledge to not only successfully fight shipboard fires, but prevent such fires and in doing so, keep his/her ship and all that ply the seas onboard safe.This study guide has been produced to complement the training text, Marine Fire Prevention, Fire-fighting, and Fire Safety, published by the U.S. Department of Transportation, Maritime Administration.
