New England Coast Guard to Conduct Small Vessel Emergency Training

The Northern New England Sector of the U.S. Coast Guard, in conjunction with the Portland (Maine) Fire Department, is hosting a one-day, hands-on emergency preparedness training workshop Thursday, May 21, focused on vessel firefighting, man overboard drills, lifesaving equipment and stowage, and other safety topics for small passenger vessel operators in Maine.

This second annual version of the workshop, taking place at the Stevens Avenue Armory, 772 Stevens Ave, Portland, Maine, 04103 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., is geared to small passenger vessel owners, operators, and crewmen. Small passenger vessels are classified as commercial vessels that carry six or more paying passengers.

USCG notes that members of the media are welcome to the event at any time but are especially encouraged to attend in the afternoon to observe the practical, hands-on training sessions. Those interested should RSVP by calling Lt. Lauren Trocchio at (207) 741-5492.
