“By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail.”
– Ben Franklin
This is why aboard ships there are drills for specific emergencies.
Everyone working on a ship has been trained for fire emergencies of all different types of fires. At sea you cannot just call up the fire department. You are the fire department.
There are man overboard drills. Everyone is trained to toss life rings overboard in the direction of the person who went over or the last known sighting in order to conduct a retrace of the ship’s course in the opposite direction.
There are drills for abandon ship. The reason is simply to be ready if you need to do this it won’t be the first time.
“The future belongs to those who prepare for it.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
