Fire and Water Presentation Last Monday
Warren Erasmus put his firefighting skills to work for a forum of interested club members last Monday night. Warrens presentation titled Fire and Water went through the basics of what is a fire, what types of fires there are and how to put them out with a presentation in the Wardroom.
We were then taken out to the Eastern Boat Lifting area where the various fire extinguishers were operated in a practical demonstration and everyone had a chance to extinguish their very own conflagration!
The very informative presentation gave a unique opportunity to fill in some knowledge gaps in that nature of fire and then to experience the practicalities of using a fire blanket and an extinguisher in the kind of controlled and calm fashion we all hope to be able to replicate when the real-life drama goes down.
Thanks go out to Warren for bringing a very professional array of equipment to the club and going through the practicalities of dealing with an onboard fire. If you missed the show you will need to catch Warren at one of the other Clubs where he has been asked to conduct similar demonstrations.
