MARINE NOTICE, No 48 of 2015
Following a recent fire onboard a vessel in Grand Canal Basin, Dublin, Waterways Ireland reminds masters and owners of vessels to be conversant with the fire fighting requirements of the various navigation bye-laws for their particular vessels.
Attention should be given to the provision of in-date fire extinguishers and also the need for gas installations to be correctly installed and regularly maintained.
Both the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) United Kingdom and the Maritime Safety Directorate, Dublin provides further guidance on these matters for recreational craft.
