DO YOU MEET THE SOLAS REQUIREMENTS FOR YOUR SHIPS?
Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS)
SOLAS Chapter II-2 details fire safety provisions including protection, detection and extinction and Regulation 10.10.4 requires that a minimum of two two-way portable radiotelephones are carried on board for each fire party, in order to provide a dedicated means of communication between fire-fighters and a crew member outside the incident area. Depending on the size and type of vessel, it may actually be required to carry more than two devices. From 1 July 2018, all ships will be required to comply with the regulation.
