Marine Fire Safety

Marine Fire Safety


Under the Fishing Vessels (Safety Provisions) Rules 1975 – Regulation 104(7) it is mandatory for non-private boats to carry suitable firefighting equipment. Having the correct firefighting equipment fitted and in full working order, will help to minimise the risk from fire, help manage the escalation of any fire that takes hold and will ensure passengers and crew have the best opportunity to escape safely. DB McLarnon Fire Protection Agency can supply and maintain the correct portable firefighting equipment under the provisions of 2002 BSS Standards Part 6.

All of the portable firefighting equipment that we supply holds the BSI Kitemark™ License and the maintenance of any existing equipment on board your vessel will be carried out by BAFE® approved service technicians
In addition to ensuring that you have the correct portable firefighting equipment, in full working order, sited in the appropriate location on board the vessel – DB McLarnon Fire Protection Agency can also service and maintain Fixed Marine Fire Suppression Systems. Along with being a practical necessity, in many circumstances having an annually serviced and operational fixed fire suppression system on board will be a requirement of maritime agencies and insurers
