Fire Safety

Fire Safety on Boats

Jimmy Green Marine stock fire blankets, portable fire extinguishers and Fire Safety Sticks, as these are the most practical size for storage on motor or sailing or yachts.

Dry Powder extinguishers have been the normal specification on smaller yachts and sailboats, as they are lighter and smaller than other water and Co2 fire extinguishers.

Recent advances in fire extinguisher technology have seen the launch of the new Fire Safety Stick, which leaves no residue and has a longer discharge time.

Keep fire blankets and extinguishers within easy reach, close to exits and risk points, such as the galley and engine area.

Boat fires may be rare, but it is wise to be prepared.
