CG Issues Safety Alert for Faulty Liferaft

Wednesday, February 05, 2003
The U.S. Coast Guard issued a Safety Alert stating that servicing of some inflatable liferafts by AMPAK facilities in Baton Rouge (Louisiana) and Panama City (Florida) may not have been proper. Work has been found in some instances to be improper and tests in some instances were not actually performed. The AMPAK facilities were not authorized by the U.S. Coast Guard to service liferafts. The AMPAK facilities have apparently ceased operations. Inflatable liferafts serviced at these AMPAK facilities should be taken to an approved servicing facility as soon as possible. If possible, the U.S. Coast Guard should be notified as it would like to witness the servicing.
