Experience An integral part of Colm’s extensive experience at sea, was part of the fire-fighting team. At sea, there is no call to 999 available, so fire prevention and tackling fires are the responsibility of the crew on board. There is a great focus on this during weekly fire drills on board ship, and during his years of service on merchant and navy ships, Colm has quite a bit of experience to share during his courses.
