Irish Coastguard Joint Search And Rescue Games 2017

Posted: May 26, 2017

We NMCI Services would like to express our sincerest gratitude to our friends and colleagues at IRCG – Irish Coastguard for the award recognizing NMCI Service’s involvement in the Joint Search and Rescue Games 2017 (JSAR17). JSAR17 was a fantastic event which NMCI Services were delighted to be part of.

 

This year’s Joint Search and Rescue competition between the Irish Coast Guard and HM Coastguard Northern Ireland took place at the NMCI in Ringaskiddy, Cork on Saturday May 20th 2017. Twelve teams of Volunteer Coast Guard members from all over Ireland competed in the hugely successful JSAR17. Throughout the competition participants were pushed to their limits as they got hands on experience with a range of intense scenarios such as

  • Preventing a ship from sinking our Damage Repair Unit,
  • Survival at sea our Environmental Pool
  • Navigation and Passage Planning in our 360 Degree Simulator
  • Med Evac
  • VHF Communications
  • Search and Rescue

The purpose of the games was to increase the level of professionalism of all Coast Guard members and to enhance co-operation between the Divisions through friendly competition. There is no denying that this successful event achieved that and more.

The event closed with an award ceremony dinner at Cork International Airport Hotel where both NMCI Services and Annette Coughlan (NMCI Maritime Liaison Officer) were presented with JSAR17 award recognising all their hard work and co-operation with the Joint Search and Rescue Games 2017.

We look forward to the next Joint Search and Rescue Games

MNTB Recognised Entry into Enclosed Spaces Training at the NMCI

Posted: March 28, 2017

 

Can you afford not to train?

 

On board Confined Space accidents are not a new phenomenon.

There were 101 Enclosed Space Accidents (reported) between March 1998 and May 2009, resulting in 93 Fatalities and 96 injuries. Since May 2009 a further 12 accidents have occurred resulting in 10 deaths and 7 injuries on the MAIB database alone (Source – Marine Accident Investigation Board). More than half of Enclosed Space fatalities and injuries are sustained by would-be rescuers.

Working in an enclosed or confined space is particularly dangerous as the space may be deficient in oxygen and/or contain flammable or toxic fumes or vapours. Basic procedures to ensure personal safety must not be compromised at any cost irrespective of the type and condition of the work.

 

As legislation is changing to protect seafarers we at NMCI Services recommend crew undertake our one day “Entry into Enclosed Spaces” course.

 

The aim of our MNTB recognised “Entry into Enclosed Spaces” course is to give you or your team training to meet the requirements set out in ‘The Merchant Shipping’ Regulations 1988, IMO Resolution A.864 and the Code of Safe Work Practices for Merchant Seamen (COSWP). The course will meet the new amended requirements laid out in the SOLAS Regulation III/19.

 

Entry into enclosed spaces is a silent killer… having up to date training will help save lives.

Port Cyclists Raise Valuable Funds for Two Charities

Posted: October 4, 2016

The Port of Cork had a team of over 90 cyclists who recently completed the An Post Rebel Tour cycle from Glengarriff. Cyclists from a range of port related companies took part in the cycle which was co-sponsored by the National Maritime College of Ireland and Zenith Energy Management Ltd. Together the cyclists raised over €1800 for Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland and over €1100 for the Seamen’s Christian Friends Society.

Cyclists chose either 85km or 160km routes across which led them to West Cork and into Kerry.

Brendan Keating, Port of Cork Chief Executive said: “This is our third year organising the cycle which was by far the biggest turnout of cyclists to date. We were delighted to partner with NMCI and Zenith Energy Management Ltd and as result two very deserving charities benefitted from our cyclists generous donations.’

He continued: ‘I’d like to congratulate all those who took part and thank you for your kind donations.’

The Seamen’s Christian Friend Society (SCFS) is based in 40 ports around the world and spends their days boarding ship after ship, meeting and assisting crews. Over a million men and women live in the twilight world of big shipping and it’s a lonely life roaming the world’s oceans for up to 12 months at a time. An SCFS Friend brings a welcome, an offer of friendship or a chance for a sympathetic talk and news of the Christian gospel to crews.

Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland is a national charity providing highly trained assistance dogs for children with autism and their families. The dogs are specially trained to provide safety, independence and companionship to children who would otherwise live in a very isolated world.  These dogs help to transform the lives of children and their families.
