how-to-wear-scba-infographic

SCBA (Self contained breathing apparatus) is an important equipment on board. We may not get to use it frequently but still it is an important equipment.

We need SCBA for fighting the fire as well as for enclosed space rescue. SCBA is required to be carried on board as per SOLAS Chapter II-2, Reg 10.

But any equipment on board is of no use if we do not know how to operate it. In case of SCBA, not only we need to know how to use it but we should be able to wear it in a flash.

During enclosed space rescue, we should be able to rescue the person quickly. A person can die because of lack of oxygen in less than 3 minutes. As such seconds matters and if we take more time to wear SCBA, we have lesser chance of successful rescue.

Drills on board have a huge impact on the timings of wearing SCBA provided we aim to improve the effectiveness of drills conducted.

So do you know how to wear SCBA correctly. This Infographic can be of some help.

Conclusion

Different ships can have different makes of SCBA on board. But there are few thumb rules that are common with all the makes. It is important that we follow these thumb rules while using SCBA during fire fighting or enclosed space rescue.

I want to say thanks once again to this great man called Dr Zuma and his spiritual way of helping people i lives in USA with my husband we love each other and also he care about me always look forward to make things easy for both of us 9 years after our wedding, we both work harder to make a family greatest surprise, we have a kid after some times again, we have another one so with this, we live in peace and he was so honest to me shortly, he started misbehaving that i don’t know what is going on then i asked him. Darling what is going on? you are so strange to me this few days hope i have not offended you? he said no. Not knowing he have an affair with one lady out side who promised him a car and apartment in one estate were i cannot see him also when he cannot see me i manage to stay with him pleading him he should forgive me if i have wrong him he started complaining he has no money that he has lost all his money in his business that he needs some money then i asked him how much is this money you are looking for? he did not know i can afford it. Then, he said $14,000USD i promised him i we give it to him just for him to care about his family. My greatest surprise, the next day, i went to work and our two kids were in school not knowing his going to leave the house before i come’s back i met some of his things outside i was waiting for him to come back he never come back i cried i miss him so much and he have taking all my money away i was only left with $800USD.

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or WhatsApp him +15068001647 blog: spiritualherbal.blogspot.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS
