            The Alaska Marine Safety Education Association will be holding a drill conductor certification course this weekend at the Coast Guard Base. Andrew Frank is a marine science technician at the Coast Guard's Marine Safety Detachment. He says day one will be in the pool at the base and asks everyone to bring their survival suits, first for an inspection, and then to practice putting them on.

 

 

--          (AMSEA 1                  21 sec              "Then we're going to ... that out in the field.")

 

            He said first-time users of survival suits often misjudge how difficult it is to get into one:

 

--          (AMSEA 2                  44 sec              "You'd think it'd just be ... event of a abandon ship.")

 

            Frank said there also will be hands-on practice with the kind of Coast Guard emergency equipment that might be dropped to fishermen in danger, such as inflatable life rafts and de-watering pumps:

 

--          (AMSEA 3                  39 sec              "This is the same stuff ... C-130 or something like that.")

 

            Day two will be in the classroom:

 

--          (AMSEA 4                  34 sec              "We just go over the ... sailed on your vessel in a while.")

 

            The drill conductor certification course, which will be held Friday and Saturday, is free to licensed commercial fishermen, but is open to anyone. There is a 200-dollar fee, but AMSEA members get a 50-dollar discount. Contact the Marine Safety Detachment or AMSEA here in Kodiak to sign up.
