MSS Case March: Engine room fire

In the Monthly Safety Scenario (MSS) case of March a serious engine room fire is being highlighted. When the carbon dioxide system did not activate the fire finally forced the crew to abandon ship.

"It was in the evening with heavy weather at around Beaufort scale 7. The vessel was heading for the discharge port. Suddenly the fire alarm sounded on the bridge. The Master, who was on the bridge at the time, saw smoke coming from the funnel ventilation on the port side. He immediately set off the general alarm."

Each month the Club's Loss Prevention team issues a new safety scenario to assist members in their efforts to comply with international safety regulations and to follow best practice. 

When discussing the case please consider that the actions taken at the time made sense for all involved. Do not only judge, but also ask why you think these actions were taken and could this happen on your vessel?
