There is no more terrifying hazard that confronts commercial seamen and commercial ships than fire at sea. To prevent this catastrophic emergency, every seaman is trained in Basic Fire Fighting. Each is expected to pay constant attention to fire prevention, and to be capable of serving as an effective member of a fire response team.

These realities are reflected in the Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) that have been adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and its member nations. Competence in Basic Fire Fighting is one of four core elements of the Basic Safety Training that all ships are now required to provide, and all seamen are obligated to achieve.
