Çeşme Marina successfully completed one of its regular sea fire prevention drills.
Committed to the health and safety of visitors, staff and the marina, Çeşme Marina regularly carries out various emergency fire and rescue drills to ensure staff and colleagues are trained for a serious scenario.
The latest fire drill at the marina involved a boat on fire outside of the marina, and included the swift action of a back up boat along with the help of the İzmir Metropolitan Municipality Fire Brigade responding with pressurised water to extinguish. In addition, a barrier was created at sea to prevent fuel leakage around the boat.
Can Akaltan CMM, General Marina Manager comments;
“The purpose of our exercise is to test the emergency response capability of our personnel and the readiness of the equipment in a similar situation that can be experienced in the marina; however, it was to ensure that coordination with our stakeholders was ensured.”
“With the start of the summer season, we have been successfully conducting our drills for many years in order to ensure that the teams are ready for the negativities that may occur in the increasing yacht and boat traffic and to prevent similar incidents by intervening in emergency situations as soon as possible. We have successfully completed our last naval exercise. We would also like to thank our Emergency Team, which is of great importance in the first response, for always being prepared for the situation.”
Such exercises, which are carried out jointly with İzmir Fire Department, Çeşme Port Authority and Çeşme Ulusoy Port, and are of great importance to the successful running of a safe and secure marina. Many thanks to all involved.
