Emergency procedures

Spillage on deck

• Of articles
Sweep or pick up articles. If the articles remain intact but appear damaged, segregate and seek advice.
• Of substances or contents of articles
Keep wet. Wash spillage overboard with copious quantities of water.

Spillage under deck

• Of articles
Sweep or pick up articles. If the articles remain intact but appear damaged, segregate and seek advice.
• Of substances or contents of articles.
Keep wet. Collect spillage where practicable using soft brushes and plastics trays for safe disposal of the spillage and the contaminated equipment overboard.

Fire on deck

If the packages are not directly involved in the fire, then efforts should be concentrated on preventing the fire reaching the explosives. This is usually done by keeping the packages wet and using water jet from as far away as practicable to drive the fire away. If practicable remove packages that are likely to be involved. If the fire reaches the explosives the crew should withdraw to a safe area and continue to fight the fire from a safe position. Where practicable articles having been exposed to fire should be kept separated from unexposed articles and monitored from a safe distance. Seek advice.

Fire under deck

Batten down; use ship's fixed fire-fighting installation. If the fire is not extinguished and circumstances permit, open hatches to prevent the building up of pressure. Otherwise adopt action as for "on deck".

Special equipment to be carried

Protective clothing (gloves, boots, fire-resistant coveralls, headgear with visors).
Self-contained breathing apparatus.
Non-sparking footwear (footwear which has no exposed iron or steel).
Soft brushes and plastics trays.
