Due to a recent incident it was decided to upgrade our fire detection system. The three domestic smoke alarms sounded only in the engine room, and not overly loudly. These have been supplemented with three wirelessly connected alarms. When one sounds the remainder also sound. It is likely that another three will be purchased to enhance these.
The detectors are located on the deckhead above the harbour generator, the ac generator and above the companionway leading down to the officer’s accommodation.
Volunteers are requested to familiarise themselves with the operation location and acoustics of these alarms.
