MIRG Video

The Baltic Sea MIRG Project by the Finnish Border Guard has finalised the report of its Work Package 2 "Baltic Sea MIRG Project 2014-2016: Ship Fire Incident Analysis". You can read it online, or you can download the pdf in the MIRG Library.

Work Package 2 involved analysing seven past ship fires in which MIRG teams or other forms of external assistance were or could have been deployed. The report recommends that coastal countries should be ready to dispatch MIRG teams to provide external help for ship's crew in firefighting operations.

The report also includes a short statistics part where the main results of Kiersten Sander's work for the IMRF "Search & Rescue Response to Ferry Accidents; Common Problems, Potential Solutions & Good Practice" are presented!
