  1. Cruise Ship Safety Dennis Hohos

  2. Sourcesof Information • Journal of Marine Science and Technology Risk assessment for fire safety considering characteristic evacuees and smoke movement in marine fires • The Navel Architect Meeting the challenge of cruise liner safety • http://www.mxak.org/safety/2-06.pdf U.S. Coast Guard Safety Alert-STAR PRINCESS Cruise Ship Fire • http://www.aluwood.net/eng/nautic_index.htm • Ship-technology.com

  3. Synopsis • The Engineers insure that all standards and codes, assigned by the International Ship Management (ISM), are followed. • Fire doors and sprinkler systems are routinely checked to make sure they function properly. • Evacuation equipment is regularly inspected to ensure safety.

  4. Overseer • The International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) . • Governs the construction and safety of vessels at sea. • Derive the international ship management code requirements used. • Codes are continually updated and backed by a full time safety training on the ship and on shore .

  5. Steps for Protection • Detection • Containment • Evacuation Dennis Hohos

  6. Prevention • “Aluwood” is a common material used as fire protection on modern ships • Made of aluminum honey comb core, with aluminum sheets and wood veneer. • Fire pumps are installed along the length of the hall • Sprinkler systems are installed throughout the ships rooms

  7. Evacuation • Older ships have escape pods, lowered by cranes • A new escape devise being installed on ships is a slide type marine escape system • A vertical shoot that drops people into a fully enclosed life raft. • This shoot was designed by RFD Marin-Ark

  8. Conclusion • With the help SOLAS fewer accidents are happening • New designs in materials are preventing fires • Designs in evacuation routes are helping to decrease evacuation time. Dennis Hohos
