Marine fire safety fixed fire protection links and resources

Marine Fire safety is a critical component to ensuring your safety while out on the water.  Having the appropriate Fire extinguisher and proper fixed fire safety equipment on board could make a big difference in the outcome of a catastrophic event.  Make sure that your boat has the appropriate fire suppression system on board including an engine room automatic fire suppression system, the correct amount of fire extinguishers, Life preservers, flares, radio communication devices, EPIRBS and other safety devices.  The coast guard will only respond if they know you are in danger. 

Some boats will have an automatic fire suppression system in the engine room which is not the right size.  Ensure that the engine room has been appropriately measured L x W x H= V and install the correct size fire system designed by the manufacturer.  Pre-engineered fixed fire systems are intended to protect by the amount of gas that is in the bottle and the range from 25 cu ft to 1500 cu ft.

The waters are abundant, and a lot of the time you are the only one out there so be sure that you are prepared.  Ensuring that all your systems are current is critical when you need them the most.  Below are some links that should help guide you making sure you have the right equipment on board.
