Maritime Risk International
UK P&I Club has released its latest video, based on a real-life incident where two men narrowly escaped serious injury while
testing an emergency fire pump. The animation depicts the situation where as part of a third-party survey, the surveyor, with
the assistance of the chief engineer, were carrying out a test on the pump. Shortly after descending into the fire pump well,

they were experiencing symptoms of dizziness, due to exposure to diffused Freon refrigerant gas, with the chief engineer in
a state of near collapse.
