Description: Fishing and other maritime activities can be very dangerous and risky. As everyone has a role to play in the SAR system, it is important to have a full understanding of how the system works. Rather than emphasizing the well-known GMDSS infrastructure, this booklet focuses on the three fundamental components of the rescue activity.
Alerting is the first stage, consisting of a well-structured course of action(s) designed to bring a marine incident to a successful conclusion.
Detection can be considered as an element of response, and sometimes is accomplished with the same equipment used for alerting.
Response Infrastructure is a complex set of resources that includes SAR communications network, primary and secondary SAR (marine and air) resources among others.
Written mainly for fish harvesters, this booklet it is of extreme interest for anyone who is at sea, whether they are dedicated to economic or leisure activities.
