  • If you are in an emergency situation, ensure all crew members are wearing lifejackets and that they are all properly secured.

  • Put on warm clothing and headgear in case you end up in the water during the rescue operation. This should be done as soon as possible as you may become too busy as the situation develops.

  • Have a grab bag ready in case you need to abandon at short notice. This should contain emergency equipment i.e. Hand held VHF, flares EPIRB, water, and thermal protective aids e.g. survival bags - not space blankets, which are unsuitable.
