Commercial Fishing Vessel: Emergency Instructions/Placards Mobile App
"The Commercial Fishing Vessel Emergency Instructions mobile app was designed for use during emergency drills and when training crew members in emergency vessel procedures.
How does it work?
The app also helps ensure that commercial fishing vessels are compliant with federal regulations regarding large vessel emergency instructions. Easily accessible from any smartphone or tablet, commercial fishing industry professionals can generate a customized checklist of instructions that is specific to their vessel. These instructions can be printed out and posted or emailed to crew members, and they are saved electronically for your records.
The emergency instructions checklist for commercial fishing boats covers procedures needed for abandoning ship for survival craft, managing fishing boat fires, and other emergency procedures that all vessel owners and their crew should be familiar with. All commercial fishing industry boats must have these commercial fishing vessel emergency instructions on hand. For those with four or more crew members, the instructions must be posted in an easy to see area for the crew. Small vessels with less than four crew members on board don't have to post the instructions, but must keep them readily available in case of an emergency. "
