All hands on deck March 12-13 for important safety training for commercial fishermen. The Oregon Sea Grant Program through a partnership with the Alaska Marine Safety Education Association, Oregon Crab Commission and the U.S. Coast Guard is once again offering the Drill Conductor Course at no cost to local fishermen.

Required by 46 CFR 28.270(c), this sea safety course helps develop and hone skills such as donning immersion suits, flood control and vessel stability as well as using distress signals, MAYDAY calls and life rafts. It is being held at Englund Marine in Newport, from 7:45 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday and Wednesday, March 12 and 13, both days.

This class is physically demanding, including timed immersion suit donning, entering the water, then into a life raft, starting pumps, putting out fires, and so forth. Space is limited so pre-registration is required.

For more information or to register, contact Michele Osterhoudt at the Lincoln County Extension Office, at 541-574-6534, or email michele.osterhoudt@oregonstate.edu.
