Brittany Ferries to Exercise with HM Coastguard

January 17, 2007

While on passage from Portsmouth to Caen, near the Nab Tower, Brittany Ferries’ Mont Saint Michel will report a fire on board. The ship's fire team will then confirm this is a serious incident and the Master will request shore side firefighting assistance from the Coastguard who will coordinate the incident response. A Coastguard helicopter will receive the scramble via the Lee-on-Solent based Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre after an emergency call has been received from the ship. Hampshire Fire and Rescue officers trained in MIRG procedures will then muster at MCA Daedalus and be taken to the vessel by the helicopter where they will be winched aboard together with their equipment ready to fight any fire on board.
