Three Legged Man Extinguishes Marina Fire
Last week Marina Ibiza carried out a simulation of fire in its facilities making sure that all staff are ready for any type of emergency.
They sent out a press release with a photograph and it was the photo that really caught my eye and prompted me to share the story with you!
The photograph seems to show that one member of staff has in fact got three legs!
The marina fire simulation was undertaken by Repson together with Cancomar as part of their safety plan, with the aim of training their staff to be prepared for any type of emergency that may arise in the marina.
The training session to the Marina Ibiza staff consisted of a theoretical-practical course in which they carried out a succession of assumptions and emergency exercises.
During the practical session, a fire drill was performed on a recreational boat after refueling at the marina’s gas station. In addition, an episode of pollution was simulated in which the appropriate means of combating pollution were deployed.
And finally, a man-over-water exercise, was carried out with its subsequent rescue and evacuation in collaboration with the Red Cross.
Every year Marina Ibiza conducts training courses on safety and the environment for its workers as part of their safety plan since it’s of vital importance that a marina of this size with so much traffic during the high season is prepared for any type of eventuality.
The main objective of these courses is the training of the staff so that they have adequate practical knowledge to be able to face any emergency situation that may arise.
Marina Ibiza is a 5 stars marina and that means offering maximum quality in every way following the upgrading works year after year to improve both its services and facilities to ensure the satisfaction of its customers.
