Where there’s smoke there’s fire!
The second day of the STCW course in Trinidad offers the most excitement. This is the day that students get to don actual fire fighting gear and tackle full-on blazes. Some people have difficulties with this section but as I expected, Rebecca did great and had a lot of fun in the process.
There are still some people who are asking why she is doing this course, the same one that I completed last year. The STCW 95 course is mandatory for anyone who wishes to work on a commercial ship. This is true for all jobs from Captains to deck hands to chefs and applies to cruise ship and day charter cats alike. So, why are we doing it? Because unless people start clicking the ads on this site about 1000 times more than they are (that’s a joke Adsence, please don’t get upset), or start purchasing our book by the 1000s (that’s not a joke!), we’ll have to find work at some point. And who wouldn’t want to hire us, right?
One of these people looks a little more happy than the others!
Fire fighting stance = karate forward stance?
Um, yeah, this is HOT!
The big hoses make short work of it though.
