The training was led by HSwMS Carlskrona’s experts in this area who, on completion of the theoretical training, began a practical exercise on the Carlskrona’s flight deck. Here, the members of the Djiboutian Coastguard were able to practice extinguishing an oil-based fire using the techniques discussed earlier in the day. They were then given a practical demonstration of the effects of the different types fire extinguishers available on board.
On completion of the training, the Djiboutian Coastguard personnel expressed their gratitude to HSwMS Carlskrona for the thorough and professional manner in which the training had been conducted.
