In an emergency

The most common emergencies in a marina are medical, fire, and spills. 

 

FIRE

Fire is any marina’s biggest risk, and any fire, no matter how small, must be taken seriously. 

1. Operate any alarm on the pier (take a moment today to find the one closest to your boat)

2. Warn others on the pier of the danger - shout!

3. Call 111 and advise the location

4. Exit to the shore or seaward end of the pier

5. Call us on 0800 MARINAS from your cell phone or VHF Channel 13.

Remember, personal safety is the priority. Get off the pier, and tell others to do the same.

Lighting of fires, including fireworks and flares, is strictly prohibited within the Marina.  If an open flame is required for repairs or maintenance then you must have a hot works permit from the Harbourmaster.  

MEDICAL

Most of the Marina staff have current first aid certificates, and there is a defibrillator at the Marina office. Call 111 in an emergency.

 

SPILLS

Should an oil spill happen, please contact the Marina Crew Dockmasters (0800 MARINAS) without delay. We are trained to deal with this type of emergency.
