Restricted access and egress: On board vessels
Vessel fires often need multi-agency involvement. This, along with the busy environment of a port or harbour, makes ensuring the control of all agencies embarking and disembarking the vessel a key consideration.
Due to the complicated layout of vessels, getting to the location of the fire to carry out firefighting operations may be difficult, due to the type of vessel and its construction.
