Statistics published by the Ministry of Interior (MOI) indicate that there were more than 2,000 fire incidents in 2021 occurred in the country. There is no doubt that fires are extremely dangerous, and they can even be fatal. Even more so when the fire is on a boat or ship in the middle of the water where there is nowhere to run to, no fire station nearby, the waves cause constant motion and the cargo may be extremely dangerous. Highly critical for the survival of both the people on board the vessel and vessel’s structure itself is the ability to quickly, safely and effectively deal with marine fires or at least contain them sufficiently until specialist help arrives.
