Enclosed lifeboats are the primary means of escape on most offshore platforms, rigs, and vessels. These survival crafts are capable of safely transporting persons through fire, toxic gases and high seas. Only with instruction on proper methods of loading, releasing, handling and maintaining life support systems can these complex survival craft prove effective at saving lives.
Next to lifeboats, the life raft can be your second-best choice of escape in a marine disaster.
