Horizon Lines Completes Firefighting Exercise in Guam

Friday, August 15, 2008

Horizon Lines has completed a containership fire-fighting exercise in Guam in cooperation with the Guam Fire Department, the U.S. Coast Guard, the Port Authority of Guam and the Port Police Department.
The training exercise was the culmination of a five-week vessel familiarization program conducted on Horizon's new Hunter Class vessels, which entered service in last year. The five new Hunter Class vessels each have a capacity of 2,824 TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) and are capable of service speeds above 23 knots.
The final exercise was conducted on board the Horizon Eagle, focusing on ship-board fire-fighting; CO2 extinguishing systems; fire hose connections; galley extinguishing systems; fire main and external hook up points; engine room fire hazards; fire-fighting gear; and vessel escape.
The cross-agency group of 105 safety personnel from the Guam Fire Department, the U.S. Coast Guard, the Port Authority of Guam and the Port Police Department benefited from close interaction with the Horizon crews and detailed inspections of each Hunter Class vessel.
