The conference agenda may be found here (new window).
The first day includes discussion of regulating and managing safety at sea; fire prevention and detection; new builds – the demands to meet requirements; and responding to a crisis. In the latter session the IMRF’s David Jardine-Smith will be speaking on the place of ‘rescue’ in modern passenger ship emergencies, and Jori Nordström of IMRF Members the Finnish Lifeboat Institution will give a presentation on Finland’s Vessel Triage Project.
The second day’s agenda includes fire management; technological innovations in life-saving equipment; and training and simulation for emergency management.
This is an excellent opportunity to explore a variety of emergency management issues affecting the passenger shipping industry, including power loss, fire risk and response, flooding, personal safety, and mass rescue operations, including on-board response and support.
