Horizon Lines' vessels receive 2011 Jones F. Devlin Awards for safety from Chamber Of Shipping Of America, honored for dramatic February rescue

Horizon Lines, Inc., one of the nation's leading domestic ocean shipping companies, has received recognition from the Chamber of Shipping of America (CSA) for its safety record, as well as for the rescue earlier this year of three stranded sailors by the Horizon Reliance.

CSA presented six Horizon Lines vessels and their crews with the 2011 Jones F. Devlin Award for safety at its 2012 Annual Safety Awards luncheon last month.  Together, these vessels have logged 18 total years without a crewmember losing a full turn at watch because of an occupational injury, reflecting Horizon Lines' long-standing commitment to safety.

The CSA Devlin Award recognizes the men and women responsible for safe ship operations. It is presented each year to self-propelled merchant vessels that have operated for at least two years without a crew member losing a full turn at watch because of an occupational injury. The awards were presented to the Horizon Challenger (5 years), Horizon Consumer (2 years), Horizon Eagle (3 years), Horizon Hawk (2 years), Horizon Hunter (3 years) and Horizon Spirit (3 years).

In addition, Captain James J. Kelleher and his crew of the Horizon Reliance were presented with the CSA's Top Honor Safety Achievement Award for the dramatic rescue of three persons from a foundering sailboat during a nighttime storm 400 miles east of Honolulu in February.  Michael Bohlman, Horizon Lines Director of Marine Services, accepted the award on behalf of Captain Kelleher and crew from United States Coast Guard Rear Admiral Kevin Cook.
