Importance of fire suppression for maritime vessels

Here at MCL, we understand that when it comes to tackling maritime fires it can be very challenging for fire and rescue services due to a number of factors, ranging from the size and nature of the vessel to accessibility. This means maritime fires can be catastrophic and more times than not the vessel will be destroyed or severely damaged beyond repair. However, fires can happen at any time even when offshore and fire & rescue are unable to help, this means people need to take action and fight the fire themselves, however, in most cases, this is not recommended as fires in maritime vessels can develop quickly due to the confined spaces and higher risk of an oil or fuel-based fire.
