Maritime Fire Fighting skills are essential to the seafarer and training is a compulsory requirement to raise awareness on fires on seagoing vessels and increase safety in the event of a shipboard fire. Shipboard fires can occur in any environment. The principal causes of fires at sea on vessels are accidents, collisions, mechanical failure in engines and cargoes catching fire. Fire hazards associated with shipboard fire varies widely and depends on the risks of accidents, combustibility of the materials used in structures, the types of cargoes carried in ships etc.

The primary focus of the STCW Marine Firefighting training programs provide both officers and crew with the knowledge and skills to confidently deal with fires on board a ship. The training increases crew and passenger safety and reduces the potentially serious incidents. International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), 1974 includes detailed fire safety provisions for all ships and specific measures for passenger ships, cargo ships and tankers.

Also anyone who owns or operates a boat needs a basic understanding of marine firefighting and the regulations under IMO, STCW, and local administrations have clearly defined training standards and requirements for seafarers onboard and also deputed personnel working ashore.
