Playing with fire hoses during a safety drill #EEL17

It was the perfect day for the first of our safety drills – calm, sunny and warm. Fortunately no-one got wet and we practised how to cool a deck or bulkhead, and how to shield someone from the heat (by expanding the jet of water to fan out and create a wall of water) in case of a fire on the ship.

We’ve been steaming towards our working area since Saturday morning, and we are itching to get started with the main work of CTD stations and mooring operations. That work will start tomorrow morning, and I predict a sizeable audience for the first station at 6am!
