Specific skills for maritime emergency response stressed

Posted: May 11, 2018 4:55 PM Updated:

Instructors from UCLA are on-island to facilitate maritime emergency response trainings throughout the week. These courses focusing on topics such as vessel fires, hazardous materials and more.

Attendees include members of the Guam Fire Department, including Battalion Chief Dean Aguon, who said, "Ship-board firefighting is not our discipline, but it's firefighting. Definitely when we have instructors come in and are able to share their experiences and their knowledge with us to make us at least better able to cope and respond to those type of responses is always advantageous to take these courses."

These trainings are being offered by the Offices of Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defense.
