Dummy Rescued From Shamrock

On Monday the local fire brigade undertook a training exercise on-board Shamrock. This was a bit short notice but was kinda exciting if you like water pumps and water jets! Basically a dummy (no not Shaune) was hidden on-board Shamrock and the fire crew had to find it. They were going to have a smoke (dry ice) machine to add to the atmosphere but unfortunately it wasn’t available to them. The two rescuers were in full air breathing apparatus and so were quite restricted. The dummy was placed in the forward locker and Shaune (being Shaune) made sure they had to use the after hatch get below deck. They took a little while to locate and extract the dummy but not too long. So lots of water, spray and noise. The whole exercise took about 20-30 minutes.

Just playing.
Ready for the rescue.
In the recovery position.
Off to be rescued another day.
Thanks to John Hartland for the photos.
