FREE Safety Training Offered for Commercial Fishermen in Metlakatla
March 10, 2012
This course meets the U.S. Coast Guard requirements for commercial fishing vessels. It is available FREE to commercial fishermen thanks to funding from AK DCCED, the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and a support contract for training services from the U.S. Coast Guard.
Participants practice hands-on in the water and on a vessel, with emergency equipment that should be onboard any commercial fishing or other sizeable vessel - PFDs, life rafts, immersion suits, EPIRBs, fire extinguishers, and practice emergency procedures like man overboard, abandon ship, fire fighting and flooding control.
Please call AMSEA at 907-747-3287 to register, or register online at www.amsea.org, or this course may be cancelled due to under enrollment.
