Role of the fire and emergency services

Image supplied courtesy of AMSA

In ports, the fire fighting and emergency services include fire prevention. The organisation responsible needs to know what dangerous chemicals are being loaded or unloaded from ships and where they are stored.

They are able to respond to emergencies in the port, both on land and above and under water. In large ports they will have boats that can fight fires with water or foam.  They must also be able to respond to and clean up oil spills.
